Needless to say, that the challenge set at the beginning of this adventure, to produce a high quality wine from year to year, by now has successufully been take up.
Among the connoisseurs, the Clarisse wine is a reference to the powerful and dense wine, but also velvety and silky at the same time. “This shows real depth and power with so much vine bark, mushroom and currant aromas and flavors. Full and chewy. Excellent. Old vine wine that is truly a dream. Best ever.” (2015 Château Clarisse Vieilles Vignes – James Suckling Notation :94-95)
