Tasting Notes Clinet 1998

90

I had high hopes for this wine prior to bottling, but Clinet often goes through a reduced, awkward stage following bottling. The 1998 reveals a dense, thick-looking purple color, as well as a closed bouquet. With coaxing, notes of damp earth, spicy new oak, truffles, blackberry and plum fruit emerge. Dense, with jagged tannin, considerable power, and a roasted, chocolatey character, this wine has not yet meshed together. I had hoped it would be less disjointed, but I still feel there is a strong likelihood that it will deserve an outstanding score. However, patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020.

Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index's Clinet vertical. This has a ripe, forward bouquet with plum, a touch of blackcurrant wine gums, becoming more herbaceous with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a sinewy entry, dark fruits such as blackberry and pomegranate, Provencal herbs, a touch of bacon fat and orange rind with firm tannins. The new oak is still very prominent and does not seem to have enmeshed within the fabric of the wine over the last two years. Tasted February 2011.
