2020 Château Clarke  (Listrac-Médoc) 88
Sweet, ripe black cherries and earth form the core of this wine. Medium-bodied, with a dusty textured finish, this will be fine to drink and enjoy in its youth. 87-89 Pts

2019 Château Clarke  (Listrac-Médoc) 89
Fresh, bright, soft and savory, with a tangy, crisp, red pit fruit-focused, medium-bodied palate and a tangy finish. The wine is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and will be best in its fruit-forward, exuberant youth. Drink from 2022-2032.

2018 Château Clarke  (Listrac-Médoc) 87
Medicinal cherries, spice and tobacco leaf aromas mesh with ripe, sweet lush cherries, dusty tannins and black raspberries with olives in the medium-bodied finish. Chateau Clarke is one very few wines in the Medoc planted with a preponderance of Merlot.

2017 Château Clarke Le Merle Blanc  (Bordeaux) 86
Bright, fresh, crisp, light yellow citrus with a touch of flowers and honey on the nose and palate make this perfect for easy summer quaffing. This is fully developed and should be opened over the next year or two.

Perhaps the only 100% Merlot wine from the Medoc is more on the tart, bright, crisp strawberry and red cherry side of the style range. This will be best in its first few years of life.

Soft, open and with quite a bit of charm in its earthy, cassis and thyme filled personality, the generous finish has a nice supple quality.

2005 Château Clarke  (Listrac-Médoc) 84
Stoic and firm in character, the nose, with its tobacco, wet earth, spice, cassis and cherry aromatics are the best part of the wine. There is an austerity on the palate that will definitely appeal to lovers of older, so called classic wines more than it did to me.
