Tasting Notes

According to Robert Parker: "Clarke's 2003 may be a sleeper of the vintage. Aromas of black currants, minerals, smoke, and damp earth emerge from this dark ruby/purple-tinged, medium-bodied, pure effort. It is reasonably generous for a wine from this backwater appellation. Drink it over the next decade." (04/06) According to the Wine Spectator: "Good berry with hints of espresso and tobacco. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a medium finish. Smoky aftertaste. Best after 2010." (03/06)

    Château Clarke in Listrac, part of the Rothschild portfolio of wines, appears frequently on our shelves, usually with every new vintage as it is released. We were fortunate to obtain a few cases of the 2003 Clarke, Listrac $36.99. 2003 was an atypically hot vintage for Bordeaux, and it shows in the extra ripeness to be found in this wine. At 15 years old, the wine remains fresh and lively, with just a hint of a more savory edge emerging. Notes of cedar and truffle play off well against the rich spice and plum notes of this mostly Merlot blend.
