A distinctive feature of the estate's clay-limestone soil is its remarkable drought resistance. The nearness of the Atlantic Ocean gives it a cool freshness that is echoed in the wine's bright bouquet. The terroir is very well suited to growing merlot grapes in a region where cabernet sauvignon is traditionally king. Thus Château Clarke is typical of the Médoc, but in an entirely original way.

Wine SpectatorOn the fleshy side for a Listrac, with good plum and blackberry coulis flavors inlaid with singed vanilla and alder notes. Light tobacco hints echo with the fruit through the finish. Drink now through 2020. 16,600 cases made.
