Vinfication: Vating by gravity, cold maceration, vinification in wooden vat and stainless steel tanks. Pumping over and pigeage. Automatic thermoregulation system. Micro oxygenation in tank.

The Château Clarke estate is in the southern part of the Médoc within the Listrac-Médoc appellation. Its inland location is far from the Gironde estuary in the middle of the limestone plateau. The property has a private, protected setting.

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.
