Château Clinet 2016: a powerful, velvety and ample Pomerol

Château Clinet is a red wine produced in the Pomerol appellation. With vines averaging 40 years of age, they are planted on a total area of 10.02 hectares and benefit from gravel-clay soils. The vineyards are committed to sustainable agriculture with horse-ploughed soils. The wine is aged in barrels (70% in new barrels). The Chateau Clinet 2016 is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Chateau Clinet 2016 had exceptional conditions. The winter and the beginning of the spring were rainy, but spring budding could proceed due to a window of good weather. Summer was very hot and dry with the fear of drought for the vines. However, rains on September 13 and 19 saved the vineyards and revived them to allow for the perfect ripening of the berries. The harvest then took place from September 22 to October 3.

At tasting, the Chateau Clinet 2016 presents a dense, deep ruby color. The nose reveals intense, pure black fruit consisting of plum and cherry along with slightly toasty aromas. The attack on the palate shows a great power and reveals a lovely velvety texture. The Chateau Clinet 2016 has a great fullness with touches of black fruit, red fruit and pepper. The tannins present a magnificent tension with subtle notes of graphite.

The tasting note is intended to describe the general profile of the wine at a given moment. Be aware that the wine can evolve in the bottle over time and express other organoleptic qualities.
