Our oenologists' opinion
Its garnet color offers a fresh nose of wild berries and mint with finely wooded point. On the palate, this wine is balanced, frank, round and nervous with a good envelope.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Appearing in the seventeenth century, the notion of "Cru Bourgeois" was given to the Bordeaux bourgeois productions of the time who owned the vineyards of the Medoc.
Domain and appellation
The Château Clarke domaine draws its origins in the 12th century, where the Cistercian monks of the Abbey of Vertheuil planted the first vines. Much later, the knight Tobie Clarke purchased this land and gave his name to the castle in 1818. The domaine was purchased in 1973 by the Baron Edmond de Rothschild.
- Terroir: The 53-hectare vineyard lies on clay-limestone hilltops.
- Viticulture: Harvesting is done manually. The vines are aged 22 to 25 years.
- Vinification: Grapes are vatted by gravity followed by a pre-fermentation cold maceration. Vinification is carried out in wooden and stainless steel vats. The wine is then matured in new or 1-wine barrels for 12 to 18 months.
