Clinet sits on the highest point on the Pomerol plateau in a very prestigious neighbourhood that includes Petrus, Vieux Chateau Certain and Lafleur. Unlike some of these bottles with four-figure prices, the owners of Clinet have made the conscious decision to keep the price at a reasonable level to accommodate the wine enthusiast, and not just those with the deepest pockets.

The wine is impressive in this vintage, its beautiful, dense, blue/black color is followed by a striking nose of creme de cassis, blackberry fruit, charcoal and a hint of camphor. The wine is rich and medium to full-bodied, displaying surprising texture, depth and breadth. This is a rich wine with good acidity and ripe tannin. It is a relatively big boy for the vintage and should drink well in 2-3 years and last up to 15 or more. It is so good, it is clearly a sleeper of the vintage, even though Clinet has been doing fabulous work for a number of years. 91-93/100 Robert Parker
