1997 Clinet, Pomerol

SKU #1094018 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good dark red-ruby. Port-like aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, damp earth and shoe polish. Ripe, lush and large-scaled on the palate; sweet black fruit flavors really fill the mouth. The tannin level is rather high, but there also strong, bright finishing fruit and notes of smoke and earth. Inner quote mark (6/1998)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1997 Clinet has turned out better than expected from barrel. Its exotic nose of truffles, vanilla, plum liqueur, black fruits, and Asian spices leads to a plump, fat wine with notes of coffee, coconut cream, and blackberries. Surprisingly dense, and revealing lots of tannin, it requires 1-2 years of cellaring, and should drink well for 10-12 years. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2012+. Inner quote mark (4/2000)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Beautiful Clinet. Very pretty berry and spice aromas. Medium-bodied, with toast, cinnamon and berry character. Medium finish. Slightly hollow center palate. Inner quote mark (1/2000)

K&L Notes

Jancis Robinson: "Ruby with strong rust rim, lots of dusty evolution on the nose. Sweet and a bit tired. Old-fashioned claret without much of a fruity core. Very dusty finish." (3/2011)
