Tasting Notes

"The 2019 Clinet is just so fragrant on the nose: black and red fruit vying for attention, iris and incense, touches of truffle in the background. The purity that Ronan Laborde and his team have achieved should be applauded. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins, perfect acidity, brilliant focus and a killer sense of tension on the finish. This is a stunning Clinet, the best that I have encountered in barrel over 20 years of tasting. That creamy texture takes your breath away. Up there with the very best - a Clinet that rivets you to the spot." - Neal Martin, vinous.com, (June, 2020), Ratings: 97-99, Drink: 2025-2060

"An 80/20 split of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that will spend 16-20 months in 75% new French oak, the 2019 Château Clinet sports a dense purple color as well as a stunning bouquet of blackcurrants, mulberries, unsmoked tobacco, chocolate, damp earth, camphor, and who knows what else. Beautifully textured, flawlessly balanced, and full-bodied, it builds incrementally on the palate and has perfectly integrated acidity and tannins, no hard edges, and world-class purity of fruit. It shows the mix of power and elegance that makes this vintage so compellingly. Don't miss it." - Jeb Dunnuck, Jebdunnuck.com, Rating: 97-100
