Clinet 2003

Chateau Clinet

14 years

The 2003 Clinet is disappointing. Light to medium-bodied and soft, with hints of over-ripe, nearly raisiny, black currant and fig-like characteristics, it exhibits a late harvest-like style with low acidity, sweet fruit, abundant glycerin, and a disjointed mouthfeel. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. *** Dense ruby-hued with a scorched earth, herb, sweet cherry, plum, and black fruit-scented bouquet, the medium-bodied 2003 reveals un-integrated, rugged tannin along with a fleshy front end that narrows in the finish. I have some reservations about the direction this 2003 will go, so I would opt for drinking it during its first 7-8 years of life.

Chateau Clinet

Chateau Clinet is a top wine estate located in the Pomerol Appellation, around 40km from Bordeaux, France. Although it is a premier wine, for both consumption and investment, its status remains unclassified, as with all wines originating from this region.

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.

 

Chateau Clinet should not be confused with Chateau L’Eglise Clinet, another independent winery based in Bordeaux, France.
