Château Clarke is one of the rare Medoc estates to produce a white wine. Le Merle Blanc is part of the Château's heritage, because it has existed since the 19th century (1890). Much-appreciated and widely-known, this white wine once accounted for up to a quarter of the Château's entire production. Baron Edmond de Rothschild felt it was important to revive this tradition. Today, Le Merle Blanc fits in beautifully with the spirit of Château Clarke.

''One a year release! The 2018 Le Merle Blanc (from a stellar vintage we might add) is another sensational release of this white Bordeaux. 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 back-end, the wine dances on the palate for minutes.''
