Located on the highest part of the famous Pomerol plateau, château Clinet has an outstanding terroir - a Gönz gravel terrace that is home to the appellation's most prized estates. Clinet was acquired in 1998 by Jean-Louis Laborde. Using sustainable methods in the vineyard and the most natural possible winemaking methods, the Laborde family has worked hard ever since to make the most of this exceptional terroir. An ambitious restructuring program took place in part of the vineyard and infinite care is taken in day-to-day operations: ploughing, training to just the right height, pruning, leaf thinning, etc. Inaugurated in time for the 2004 vintage, the cellar was designed in such a way as to make maximum use of gravity flow.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The blend is largely dominated by 85% Merlot, with some Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Cabernet Franc also included. Inky/purple-colored, the wine has an exceptionally full-bodied, layered, moderately tannic mouthfeel and impressive power. Loads of melted chocolate/fudge and black fruits galore along with some coffee bean, mocha, as well as some background oak are all present in this big, formidably endowed, masculine style of Pomerol that will take longer to shed its tannin than the 2009. I would give this wine 5-6 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 30+ years.
