Clinet 2022


Case Format: 1x300cl

Max score: 98.0

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%).



Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2022 Clinet is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, aging in 80% new oak. It was harvested from harvest from the 6th to the 21st of September and yields were 34 hl/ha. Deep garnet-purple in color, it storms out of the glass with powerful notes of plum preserves, crème de cassis, and boysenberries, leading with suggestions of sandalwood, mossy tree bark, sassafras, and mocha with a waft of tar. The full-bodied palate is rich and densely laden with black fruit preserves, supported by firm, grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and opulent. This is a wonderfully decadent wine that will be very long-lived but will require some patience.

Jancis Robinson

Intense crimson. Sweet, supple, hedonistic nose. Very smooth and seductive with, just, enough freshness and some rigour in the structure. Lots of tannin built into this ambitious wine although the sheer weight of ripe fruit distracts until the end of the palate. Should have a longer life than many of its peers.
