K&L Notes

91-94 points Antonio Galloni in Vinous: "The 2018 Clinet is a powerful, explosive wine. Clinet is unusual for Pomerol in that the wine includes a good bit of Cabernet Sauvignon (15% in 2018). Gravel, smoke, licorice, grilled herbs, leather and menthol wrap around a core of plush, dark fruit. The Cabernet is very much felt in the wine's flavor profile and textural weight. Dense, rich and inviting, Clinet is a winner from proprietor Ronan Laborde. Tasted three times. (4/2019)

    As usual, Clinet features racy, exotic black fruit with freshness and grip. Very tasty! No question one of the few great buys from the commune of Pomerol. 1.5 Stars Ralph Sands

    One of the tour de forces for 2018-they have been making great wines of late. Black color. Deep and dense wine with blackberries on nose and palate. Putit away for a long time.

    One of the top wines tasted at the Union des Grands Crus at Chateau Beauregard in Pomerol during En Primeur week. Clinet has expressive red fruits, cranberries and dark cherries, plenty of smoke and graphite, with a pleasant lingering acid driven finish. There is plenty of structure from the concentrated fruit, robust tannins and bright acidity, so this will age well for at least a couple of decades.

    Perhaps my favorite Clinet since the 2010, and there are tons of highlights within that range. In contrast to the more structured 2015 and 2016, this year's flagship bottling is generous, polished, and incredibly delicious already. Waves of pure red fruits and fine grain tannin carry a long, long finish. It is certainly a bit on the modern side of things but never overdone - it manages balance deftly and with tons of character.
