Tasting Notes Clinet 2009


Clinet has been on a hot streak lately and the 2009 appears to be the greatest wine ever made at the estate, surpassing even the late Jean-Michel Arcaute’s monumental 1989. A blend of 85% Merlot and tiny amounts of Cabernet Franc (12%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (3%), this big Pomerol boasts an opaque, moonless night inky/blue/purple color in addition to a gorgeous perfume of blueberry pie, incense, truffles, black raspberries, licorice and wood smoke. Viscous and multi-dimensional with silky, sweet tannin, massive fruit concentration and full-bodied power, there are nearly 4,000 cases of this thick, juicy, perfect Clinet. It should drink well in 3-5 years and keep for 25-30.

Aromas of dark fruits, hazelnut and dark chocolate, follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins that are polished and refined. Beautiful depth of fruit to this. Best in 2018.

James Suckling, February 14th 2012

The Clinet ’09 is a massive wine but on this occasion it is curiously reticent at first and demands coaxing. Perhaps this is on the cusp of closing down. The palate is full-bodied and dense, loaded with glycerin but still beautifully balanced with firm backbone and massive grip on the finish. This is a child prodigy that is about to enter what might well be a turbulent adolescence, but is certain to inspire awe just as the 1989 and 1990 Clinet can do at present. Tasted June 2013.
