Description

Le Merle Blanc de Château Clarke Bordeaux Blanc 2019

The Le Merle Blanc de Château Clarke by Baron Edmond de Rothschild glows straw yellow with greenish-golden highlights. The first nose provides an aromatically intense and complex bouquet of sun-ripened citrus fruits and  white flowers. After a little swirling, notes of white peach and gooseberries open with a hint of exoticism. Aromatic citrus determines the palate. The white Bordeaux wine is very elegant and fresh, at the same time round and balanced, with beautiful fullness of juicy fruit and discreetly integrated oak wood.In the finale fresh, concentrated and smooth with notes of grapefruit and delicate spice. 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Sauvignon Gris, 10% Muscadelle, 10% Sémillion

In the cool hours of the morning, the  grapes are picked selectively and by hand. A gentle pressing follows in the basement. The must is pre-clarified by natural sedimentation. At controlled temperatures, the clear must was then fermented partly in a stainless steel tank (80%), partly in new barriques and the wines were finally aged for five months in a stainless steel tank.

Château Clarke is one of the rare vineyards in the Médoc that produce a white wine. The Merle Blanc is part of the history and heritage of the Château, as it has been produced since the late 19th century (1890). Highly respected and renowned, it has accounted for up to a quarter of the Château’s production. Today, this rare wine fits perfectly into the spirit of the estate.
