2009 Chateau Clinet Pomerol Bordeaux - 100 pts!

Château Clinet is a wine producer located in Pomerol, Bordeaux, on the Right Bank of the Gironde. The vineyards are planted predominantly to Merlot, alongside small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon.

These proportions are mirrored in the makeup of the highly regarded and ageworthy grand vin. The 1989 and 2009 vintages both achieved perfect 100-point scores from Robert Parker.

When the Laborde family bought the château in 1998, consultant Michel Rolland increased the amount of time the grand vin spent in new oak and introduced a range of modern winemaking techniques in the winery. Today the château relies on an in-house group of winemakers.

The vineyard site is one of the oldest in Pomerol, with evidence dated back to 1595.

Robert Parker 100 RP - 2009 Chateau Clinet Pomerol Bordeaux - 100 pts! 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.
