Baron Edmond de Rothschild, a partner in Chateau Lafite Rothschild, purchase Chateau Clarke in 1974 and completely renovated the domaine and its vineyard in Listrac-Medoc. The quality of the wines have increased tremendously to reach greatness as illustrated by the 2009 vintage. We are all amazed to find such quality at that price for a 2009 Bordeaux Vintage. This is a true Listrac-Medoc, soft, gentle and floral. The nose exudes cherries and black licorice. On the palate it comes out plumpy, soft and spicy with a warm feel. Greta balance between tannins and freshness. A great achievement (Gault & Millau, 2009).
