The 2014 Chateau Clinet purple-ruby-tinted red colour gives way to a very aromatic nose, dominated by delicious notes of jammed raspberry, dark berry and liquorice. Those fragrances then evolve into more peppery and toasted fragrances. On the palate, this Pomerol possesses a creamy and silky texture since Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc prevail on the Merlot. Both intense and sweet, the palate reveals cherry and forest fruit aromas. It is a balanced and refreshing wine that foreshadows the success of a beautiful vintage.

Château Clinet is a small Pomerol property that has leapt to prominence in the last 15 years and now produces one of the most sought-after wines in the region. The 9-hectare vineyard is on top of one of the finest plateaux in Pomerol and is planted with Merlot (80%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) and Cabernet Franc (10%).

In the 1980s Jean-Michel Arcaute married Clinet's proprietor George Audy's daughter and by 1986 Jean Michel was running the property. He engaged the services of cult oenologist Michel Rolland, who introduced much later harvesting, ensuring super-ripe fruit, as well as extending the amount of time the wines spent in 100% new oak barriques. Within 5 years, Clinet's wine were being compared to those of Pétrus, Lafleur and Le Pin, and selling for similar prices.

Clinet produces a wine which is concentrated and rich but is supremely well balanced with a finish that lasts and lasts. It is hard to resist when young, yet the wines from the best vintages will continue to improve for over 10 years. Jean-Michel Arcaute was tragically killed in a boating accident in 2001.
