Winemaker Notes

Chateau Clinet displays deep black-purple color with lots of charming aromas of wild raspberries, blackberries and wild strawberries. The lush fruit subtly intertwines with the palate of coca, toast, licorice, vanilla and Madagascar pepper. Silky and intense on the palate. Its rich, smooth mouthfeel evokes an intricate blend of ripe fruit and warm spice with a lingering, flavorful finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Another resounding success for the vintage, the opaque purple-colored 2008 Clinet (14.4% alcohol) is composed of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Yields of 38 hectoliters per hectare, while higher than in 2010, were still modest. Another powerful, big, large-scaled effort, the 2008 exhibits an inky/purple color as well as sweet creme de cassis, blackberry, plum, Asian spice, licorice and incense notes. Layered and full-bodied with stunning purity and a 40+ second finish, this beauty needs 3-5 years of bottle age and should keep for 25-30 years.

Rating: 94+ Points

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Ripe, rich and almost flashy, with gorgeous spice, mocha and warm raspberry ganache notes up front, followed by darker fig, currant, graphite and black tea on the long, racy finish. Accessible now, this will be a real winner when it knits together fully.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Dark-colored wine, with smoky, bitter chocolate flavors: cocoa plus spice and jammy black plums. It’s powerful, densely textured, finishing with good acidity.
JS 90
James Suckling
Smoky and fruity, with dark fruits and spices. Full body, chewy tannins, with an excellent core of fruit underneath it all. This needs time to mellow. Give it at least three or four years.
