2005 Feytit Clinet, Pomerol (1.5L)

SKU #1268030 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This estate is coming to life again after a long period of mediocrity. The deep ruby/purple-hued 2005 Feytit Clinet is performing brilliantly, offering up notes of chocolate-covered blackberries, licorice, incense, and notions of earth as well as oak. A 1,600-case blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, from a 15-acre vineyard situated near Trotanoy, the 2005 is full-bodied and powerful with sweet but substantial tannin, good acidity, and a long finish. It will benefit from 5-6 years of bottle age, and should improve over the following two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030. (RP)  (4/2008)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good ruby-red. Sexy, ripe aromas of cherry, mocha and iron; very Pomerol. Suave, lush and sweet; not hugely concentrated but impressively spherical and inviting. Silky flavors of redcurrant, cherry and mocha. Broadens out impressively on the back end, finishing with fine-grained tannins. I find this very sweet wine accessible already. (ST)  (5/2008)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Aromas of blackberry, earth, vanilla and tobacco follow through to a medium-to-full body, with tobacco and chocolate character and a long finish. Equal to the beautiful 1982.  (3/2008)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
