Winemakers Note

Clinet, a rising star of the appellation Modest but sure of its presence, Clinet lies at one of the highest points upon the renowned plateau at the heart of Pomerol - instantly recognisable by its red shutters and beautiful roses. It is home to one of the oldest vineyards in the appellation, with traces of the vineyard's existence dating back to 1595. This vineyard is equally famed for offering wine with an incomparable character and quality. While in the 19th century, Clinet and Pétrus were owned by the same person, now the estate belongs to the Laborde family and is managed by Ronan Laborde, also President of the "Union des Grands Crus Classés". Its 10-hectare vineyard sets apart with its atypical grape proportions for the appellation: it gives pride of place to Merlot but counts also 25% of Cabernet-Sauvignon. The anecdote : Lebron James chose Clinet to celebrate his 37th Birthday. The 2021 vintage Ronan Laborde tells you about this 2021 vintage: https://bit.ly/Clinet2021 « A vintage ranked among the good vintages, suffused with softness and expressing a beautiful palette of aromas. CLINET 2021 displays gorgeous layers of deep, dark ruby. Wonderfully expressive on the nose, it unfolds well-defined aromas of ripe fruit (raspberry, blackberry, blackcurrant) and oriental spice, sprinkled with floral notes. Connoisseurs will recognize CLINET’s signature style, albeit with a touch of originality in the proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon (25%), which is higher than usual in this vintage. With its soft mouthfeel and silky tannins, the wine is still beautifully intense and lingers pleasingly on the palate. One can but relish this wine’s aromatic richness and precision, and take delight in its grace and harmony.» Ronan LABORDE, owner & CEO
