The pale yellow color of the Le Merle Blanc is clear and bright with green glints. The nose is both subtle and complex, combining minerality with notes of candied quince and licorice. On the palate, the wine is balanced with a nice acidity maintained throughout the length.
Chateau Clarke is one of the rare vineyards in the Medoc that produce a white wine. The Merle Blanc is part of the history and heritage of the Chateau, 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 Chateau’s production. Today, this rare wine fits perfectly into the spirit of the estate.
