    This wine has a perfect balance between opulence and finesse that is hard to describe. The tannins are quite present even though enveloped by lush flavors of chocolate, plums and vanilla, which suggests that a longer term in the cellar may benefit the wine.

    The 2009 Clinet sold for $350 on the shelf. The 2012 expression is going for $79.99. If pressed, I'd take the subtle nuance and the graceful beauty of the 2012 over the big fruit and power of the 2009. While 2009 is my favorite Bordeaux vintage of the last ten years, I can't afford many of the high prices. What 2012 offers is a chance to get in on the ground floor for once---AND DON'T THINK YOU'RE SETTLING FOR LESS BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT. This wine is the real deal, loaded with red fruits, a bit of tobacco leaf from the Merlot, and an wonderfully integrated finish with delicate tannic structure. This is a chance to actually add Clinet to your cellar rather than dream about drinking it from behind the glass window.

    If you’re a fan of Pomerol then you owe it to yourself to check out the 2012 Chateau Clinet Pomerol. Always a consistent performer this year they have lapped the field with a broad-shouldered wine loaded with a sexy nose of cherry-kirsch, dark fruit and baker’s chocolate. The palate is a densely wound core of purple fruits, blackberry and blackcurrants with hints of molten earth and spice. Loaded with fine tannins and nice oak accents this wine is flat-out delicious!!
    Drink from 2016 to 2035
