Why the Name ”Clarke”？

Terroir and Effort for Outstanding Wine
Today, the vines are planted on clay-limestone hilltops that enable the Merlot grape to express itself at its best. And ever since the first vintage year at Château Clarke, bottled in 1978, the quality of the wines has never ceased to improve
The ancient buildings have been restored, and the techniques and equipment used in the winemaking process have been brought up to date. Particular attention is paid to the methods of cultivation and wine production, which are subject to the most stringent controls. The handpicked grapes are carefully transported and meticulously sorted in the cellar and then vatted through simple gravity into superb wooden vats. The wine is then placed in new barrels, where it is left to mature for between 14 and 18 months.
Thus, the wine from Château Clarke is a true reflection of the land that made it: concentrated and distinguished. It allies power with aromatic complexity, and has great potential for ageing.

DECANTER ★★★★ - score: 16.5
Intense deep purple-red, concentrated yet fresh blackcurrant fruit, good depth but not over-extracted. Touch of green but has enough depth to carry it through.
