2016 Le Merle Blanc de Chateau Clarke, Bordeaux Blanc
The 2016 vintage marks a big step in quality for Le Merle Blanc, this vintage, apart from being fantastic is one of the first vintages to include Sauvignon Gris in the blend – which adds a rich texture to the palate. An explosion of aromas jump from the glass to reveal freshly squeezed grapefruit, white flowers and citrus peel. The palate has wonderful purity, zippy acidity, and a lovely clean yet soft mouth feel. The finish boasts plenty of citrus fruit and classic stony minerality. A little over 1,000 cases of this wonderful wine are produced annually.
