Clinet 1982

Chateau Clinet

35 years

Today, Clinet is one of the most exciting wines of France, but in 1982, it was one of that country's most conspicuous under-achievers. In 1982, machine harvesters were used, yields were high, there was no selection, and little new oak was utilized. The results were mushy, diffuse, loosely constructed wines such as this 1982, which is approaching full collapse . Since the mid-eighties, under the inspired leadership of Jean-Michel Arcaute, Clinet has become one of the bright shining stars of winedom, with a bevy of outstanding wines beginning in 1987 and peaking with the other-worldly, virtually perfect 1989 and 1994. Brilliant wines were also produced in 1990 and 1993. Tasted 2 times since bottling with consistent notes.

The total area of the vineyard of Chateau Clinet spans just over 8 hectares; the terroir renowned for being one of the best in the entire Pomerol region. The grape composition for Chateau Clinet is 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The ageing of the fine wines is processed in 60% new oak barrels and 40% one-wine oak barrels.
