Currant and cherry aromas are underlined with iron and rust. Medium-to full-bodied, firm and chewy yet polished and poised. Tension and style at the end.

The 2016 Château Clarke has some obvious oak but makes up for it with ample fruit. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with loads of black cherry and cassis fruit intermixed with graphite and leather, it has solid purity, medium body, fine tannins, and impressive length on the finish. It’s a serious wine from Listrac to enjoy over the coming decade.

This is excellent, really feels much deeper, richer and more deeply textured in its fruit expression than any others in the line-up. Intense cassis and bilberry flavours, and although this is still Merlot dominant in the blend, the Médoc character of the Cabernet Sauvignon and the tannic frame is clear.

Deep ruby red with purple edges; aromas of black plum, black mint and eucalyptus. Medium-full with a rich, well-structured mid-palate, medium-full tannins, very good acidity and beautifully integrated wood notes. Classically styled.

This is a very good wine with succulent black fruits, richness, great aromatics, and a juicy finish. Gourmet in style, with mouthwatering salinity on the finish that you also get in 2014 and is less clear in the earlier vintages. Eric Boissenot consultant as of this vintage.

Blackberries are the dominant fruit along with hints of crab apple and cinnamon spice. This has a more gourmet overtone than the 2011, and is a little richer overall in terms of structure and weight. Still ready to drink now, with the lovely hints of smoked oak that were found in the 2009. A good choice for opening now.

Deeper in colour than the 2009, as you might expect from a heftier vintage. This is ready to drink now, although fresh acidities abound, and concentrated black fruit notes are still evident meaning that it should stay the course for a good while yet, and is almost certainly not at its peak. Different style of pleasure here from the 2009 - more spice, cloves, cassis, the Cabernet Sauvignon showing dominance.

Toasty and generous on the nose, with plenty of pencil shavings and high-end oak finding a counterpoint in spiced plums and black licorice. These precede a silk-textured palate that glides across the tongue and flashes with flavors of currants, blueberries, and the suggestion of cafe mocha and garam masala on the finish. Fantastic now, and will continue to evolve for another decade or more.

This estate has belonged to the Edmond de Rothschild family since 1973. From one of the top performing properties in Listrac, this wine is well proportioned, rich and dense. It has weight but its main thrust is elegance, with stylish black-currant fruit, acidity and a dry core from the wood aging. The wine will age well and should not be drunk before 2023.

The 2015 Clarke has an attractive blackberry and briary scented nose with just a hint of dark chocolate emanating from the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, the acidity nicely judged with fine tension on the cedar and tobac

Sweet and generous but also with quite a slug of dry tannins, and that really gives the wine some character and drive at the finish. You can drink it now, but better in 2020.
