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 :
Clinet has produced a blockbuster wine, even in the lighter, less consistent vintage of 2011. It reveals a dense purple color as well as an abundance of black cherry, black currant and blackberry fruit intermixed with licorice, incense and a touch of camphor. Full-bodied, opulent and fleshy with a substantial finish, this showy, dramatic 2011 should drink well for 15-20 years. Brilliant!
