2018 Le Merle Blanc de Chateau Clarke

White Bordeaux Bliss!
From the Chateau Lafite Family. Less than 50 cases imported!

Who is behind Le Merle Blanc de Chateau Clarke?

The Rothschild Family of Chateau Lafite!

We only get one shot at this beauty each year. Last year, it sold out in three days!

This release, the 2018 Le Merle Blanc (from a stellar vintage we might add) is one of the best expressions of wine we've ever tasted!

This white has become an icon of the region and home to some of finest Sauvignon Blanc in the world.

Fresh. Pure. Sophisticated.

Notes of white peach, lime-leaf, green apple, stone fruit, bees wax, lychee, and blanched almond ride the palate with outstanding acidity and a zesty structure that braces you for the next sip. With exceptional length and texture on the backend, the wine dances on the palate for minutes. 

A classic white Bordeaux blend, the wine is mostly Sauvignon Blanc with a bit of Semillon and dash of Muscat to add complexity and round out the hard citrus edges of the Sauvignon Blanc grape.

Enjoy this delicious white all year long with seafood, white meat and goat cheese. 

A mere 50 cases were imported. 

Make sure you are one of the lucky few that gets to enjoy it this year!

Enjoy!

$39.95 per bottle / $479.40 per case
