This small Pomerol estate (just over 11 hectares) is famed for its balanced, characterful wines. Chateau Clinet is instantly recognisable thanks to its prime location on one of the highest points of the Pomerol plateau, as well as its iconic red shutters. Not far from L’eglise Clinet and Trotanoy, Chateau Clinet boasts some of the oldest vineyards in the appellation – some of which can be traced back to 1595. The estate was bought by Jean-Louis Laborde in 1999 whose decision it was to employ the mighty consultant Micheal Rolland. The 88% Merlot vines and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon vines, which have an average age of 42 years, are planted on soils that are wonderfully balanced with gravel, clay and rich sand. Clinet vinifies each plot separately in their cellar, preserving their unique characteristics. Under Rolland’s direction, the amount of time spent ageing in new oak was increased, with vintages now spending an average of 16 months in 60% new French, German and Austrian oak barrels (the type of barrel used corresponds to the requirements of each grape variety). Since 2004, the Chateau has been managed by Ronan Laborde who has overseen impressive transformations at Clinet, from replanting vines and rebuilding facilities, to implementing environmentally-friendly practices and work in harmony with nature.
