Critical Acclaim

RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Clinet has been on a hot streak lately and the 2009 appears to be the greatest wine ever made at the estate, surpassing even the late Jean-Michel Arcaute’s monumental 1989. A blend of 85% Merlot and tiny amounts of Cabernet Franc (12%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (3%), this big Pomerol boasts an opaque, moonless night inky/blue/purple color in addition to a gorgeous perfume of blueberry pie, incense, truffles, black raspberries, licorice and wood smoke. Viscous and multi-dimensional with silky, sweet tannin, massive fruit concentration and full-bodied power, there are nearly 4,000 cases of this thick, juicy, perfect Clinet. It should drink well in 3-5 years and keep for 25-30.
JS 96
James Suckling
Aromas of dark fruits, hazelnut and dark chocolate, follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins that are polished and refined. Beautiful depth of fruit to this. Best in 2018.
D 96
Decanter
Silky, seductive raspberry and blueberry fruits are joined by dark chocolate and toasted almonds. This is powerful on the attack, then settles down and starts to unveil the confident sexiness of Clinet in its prime. It's very young still, but it could be drunk from a carafe in the next few years. It's dense, rich and sweet-throated, a gorgeous Clinet. As with Nénin, the quality of the tannins is so different from St-Emilion and the left bank - silky and effortless - usually to do with the higher pH levels, meaning an overall perception of lower acidity.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Very lush and exotic, boasting plum sauce, crushed fig, warm raspberry confiture and steeped black currant fruit all dripping over a racy but buried graphite spine. The long, dark finish has plenty of stuffing for the long haul. Really beautifully rendered. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2015 through 2034.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
A smooth, superripe wine, full of the sweetest fruit, big and rich. It is opulent, a powerhouse of dense Merlot fruits, rounded out with soft tannins.
