Clinet 2018

Clinet

Case Format: 3x150cl

Max score: 99.0

Modest in size, Château Clinet has still managed to shoot to prominence, establishing itself as one of the most famous wine producers in the Pomerol appellation. During the 1980s, the esteemed oenologist Michel Rolland was enlisted to help reinvent the vineyard’s operations. By introducing a much later harvest to guarantee super-ripe fruit, as well as elongating the time spent in the oak barriques, it only a took a matter of years before Clinet was being compared to the big guns Pétrus, Lafleur and Le Pin. The result? A concentrated, bountiful wine with seemingly infinite length. Whilst very drinkable when young, it’s best enjoyed over a ten-year period. A standard Château Clinet blend comprises Merlot (c.88%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (c.12%).

Closed and coiled right now, with ripped layers of fruit. A ton of graphite, bitter dark chocolate and finessed berry fruits. Definitely need to give this time and respect its muscular from. A seriously impressive Clinet that has held its form over ageing.

Tasted blind. Some evolution at the rim. Quite evolved and integrated. Medium weight. Sandpaper tannins on the end.
