Chateau Clarke Listrac-Medoc Bordeaux 2014
Owned by Baron Edmond de Rothschild and now his son Benjamin Rothschild, Chateau Clarke is a top quality property in the middle of the Listrac-Medoc region of the left bank. The name of the Chateau is from it's first owner Tobie Clarke of Irish origin. It was replanted and renovated by the Rothschild to predominately Merlot vines (which is atypical for a left bank property). This property also over looks Chateau Malmaison (owned by the Baron's wife).
As one of the wealthiest Rothschild in the family and part owner of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild, Edmond saw something special at Chateau Clarke and dedicated many years at modernizing the property. The facilities today are up to date and well kept. The Baron's final resting place is also at the Chateau.
80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
