Clinet 2023

Clinet

Case Format: 1x300cl

Drinking Window: 2050.0

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%).

CRITIC REVIEWS

Jane Anson

Deep rich plum in colour, great balance and careful extraction, you are held by steady hands here. Cloves, cocoa bean, liqourice, freshly cut dried herbs, thyme and fresh sage, slow-build and slow progress with slate-textured tannins. A great quality Clinet, well judged appellation typicity, and floral kick on the finish. 80% new oak, 42hl/ha yields.

James Suckling

This is full-bodied yet tight and poised, with a pretty, pure center-palate of ripe fruit and fine, integrated tannins. Classy presence. May be better than 2022.
