Baron Edmond de Rothschild:
The origins of the Château Clarke estate date back to the 12th century when the Cistercian monks of the Vertheuil Abbey planted the first vines.

The origins of the Château Clarke estate date back to the 12th century when the Cistercian monks of the Vertheuil Abbey planted the first vines. Much more recently, the knight Tobie Clarke purchased the land that would permanently bear his name in 1818. Then, after being repeatedly handed down and finally sold, the property was bought in 1973 by the Baron Edmond de Rothschild. It was at this time that the neglected vineyard was re-planned, and then completely recreated between 1974 and 1978, to attain a final wine-producing area of 54 hectares. 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. Since September 2001, the handpicked and carefully transported harvest has been received in a superb wooden vat; the grapes have been meticulously sorted in the wine store and then vatted through simple gravity. 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. Since 1997, Baron Benjamin de Rothschild has followed in the tradition of his father, transmitting his own passion for excellence to his dynamic workforce. Read less

It's not secret that I am a big fan of this estate's wines. I think they represent very good value in the Medoc because of the estate's size, the enormous investment that's been put in, and the fact that since its a Listrac-Medoc, they can't charge an arm and a leg for their bottles! Bountiful red fruit on the nose with a touch of tobacco. Very soft in the mouth with good fruit. Elegant with some spice and moderate amounts of tannin. A fine finish on fruit - this is a red fruit-driven wine. Another very good effort from Chateau Clarke.
