2008 Clinet, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)
94-97 points Robert Parker: "This is the greatest Clinet since the incredible duo made by the late Jean-Michel Arcaute in 1989 and 1990. The dense purple-colored 2008 offers up beautiful floral, blackberry, and pen ink-like notes, exceptional intensity, that multilayered texture that seems to be commonplace in the top 2008 Pomerols, silky but elevated tannins, good freshness, precision, and nuance, a substantial size, and an extremely long finish with not a hard edge to be found. It should evolve for 30+ years." (04/09) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Firm, but ripe, this very sweet Merlot comes through a core of tense acidity. This is chunky, foursquare, remaining fruity while also tannic." (04/09) K&L's notes - ** Smoky nose and flavor. Intriguing wine. A bit international in style, but I like it very much. Please note - 2008 Bordeaux futures are not in stock, but will arrive between Jan 2011 and Dec 2011 We will contact you for shipping instructions.
