Details for Château Clarke Red Bordeaux Blend Listrac-Médoc 1994

Has anyone bought this wine recently?
I have a case of this wine I put away several years ago and I am trying to value it?

I have not seen the wine at retail recently but would expect to see it selling for between $400 and $600 a case.

That's about what I would estimate in Canada as well. The 1994 vintage was very mixed - tannic and red but lacking somewhat in pizazz. As for Ch. Clarke, I have not tasted many from this property (I only own two 2005 editions), but would recommend selling soon as I would not expect this wine to improve much over the next few years.

Most 94's are best drunk now unless from one of the better growths with a good track record from this year. Clarke, though eminently drinkable, is not one of the better growths.

Nevertheless, perhaps you made a good investment. What (if I may be so bold) did you pay for it?
