About
the estate Château Clarke

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.

The vast majority of its plots are planted with red grape varieties: merlot accounts for 70% of the 55 hectares and the remaining space is devoted to cabernet sauvignon. Sauvignon blanc, muscadelle and sémillon, which are used in the Merle Blanc blend, occupy a small, three-hectare space for limited production.
