2016 Chateau Clinet By Clinet Pomerol$39.99
I guess you can call this Clinet’s other wine, but it’s really an expression of three different terrior that characterize Pomerol. The grapes come from a selection of wine growers in Pomerol with some declassified wines from the Clinet estate. The wine is made exactly like the ‘Grand Vin”, and its already drinking quite splendidly now. A blend of 95 % Merlot, and 5 % Cabernet Franc this wine is aged for 12 months in oak barrels. The gorgeous fruit of the vintages really shines in this wine, and the wine is so well-balanced its really a joy, and quite easy to consume already ( almost drank half the bottle while doing this write up). Aromas of cassis, minerals, red flowers, spice, and underbrush soar from the glass. The palate is quite refined with notes of red currant cranberry, fresh plum with hints of fresh hazelnut, and a savory component. A pure expression of the power and charm of the Pomerol terroir. The supplier only brought in a pallet of this wine for all the USA, so its very rare, and we are happy to be selling it at USA low pricing!
