Château Clarke limited edition case

£275.00

Chateau Clarke was acquired by Baron Edmond de Rothschild in 1973 and is situated in the appellation of Listrac Medoc, on the ‘left bank’ of Bordeaux. The vineyard is planted with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines, which were replanted soon after Baron Edmond acquired the estate. Three wines are produced at the estate, the top cuvee Chateau Clarke, often needs more than five years bottle age to show its full potential. This limited edition case, of which only 100 were produced, showcases three of the most celebrated vintages the estate have produced. All of the wines have spent their life resting in a cool corner of the cellar until early 2021.

Tasting notes

This beautifully branded case is individually stamped with numbers from 1 to 100. Each case contains six 75cl bottles in total (2 x 2003, 2 x 2005, 2 x 2009)

The 2003 vintage is drinking beautifully offering layers of tertiary complexity from leather to cigar box with a core of red fruit. The 2005 vintage, after a period in a decanter, possesses a wonderful nose of rich black fruit, tobacco and earthy spice with a creamy palate and lingering finish. Finally, the 2009 vintage. This warm vintage is built in a fruit-forward style with supple tannins and juicy black fruit peppered with toast and charred cedar.
