Incredibly aromatic and expressive nose full of ripe red fruits and floral scents. Smooth and sappy with bounds of energy and vibrancy. The red berry fruit feels really well worked, smooth and detailed, ripe but not too much so you get nuance and refinement to the overall impression. Succulent and just so tasty. Tannins are massy and chewy though also have a slightly chalky edge giving more texture and flavour detail. This 100% Merlot, made by the same team as Château Clinet in Pomerol with a collection of growers across Bordeaux, is incredibly delicious and joyful, a perfect time to drink yet feels as if it has more life left in it yet. A top buy!

Magnum is generally the best quantity to buy any wine in and this is no exception. What a superb little wine! This is 100% Merlot from a variety of appellations on the north bank of the estuary are handled with extreme care and attention. Oak aged to soften the tannins, the nose is expressive with plenty of raspberry, blackberry and cherry fruit with hints of flowers such as violets. On the palate it is deliciously fruity with good structure and excellent acid balance with some fine notes of spices in the finish. Persistent and toothsome. An excellent job from this top producer who built a winery in Pomerol specifically for the production of this little gem.

  • ❖ ABV: 13.5%

Château Clinet

Successive generations of owners have been producing world-renowned wines at Château Clinet for centuries. Located 40km to the east of Bordeaux, on the right bank of the Garonne River and on one of the highest points on Pomerol’s plateau, Clinet is one of the oldest vineyards in the appellation. The estate’s gravelly clay soil lends itself to Merlot production which accounts for eighty percent of the estate’s vineyard.
