2017 Clinet, Pomerol

SKU #1477805 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is stacked with tannins and concentrated fruits, with a dense texture. The wine’s future is assured and long term. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is brimming with raspberry and boysenberry compote flavors, while mouthwatering anise and pain d’épices notes fill in the background. Reveals a flash of ganache, a streak of tar and an echo of bramble through the finish, adding range while the gorgeous fruit holds center stage. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Clinet opens slowly to reveal vibrant red and black fruits: red currants, black cherries, plums and cassis with touches of roses, yeast extract, wood smoke and crushed rocks. Medium-bodied with firm, grainy tannins and a taut, muscular palate of tightly wound fruits and compelling mineral accents, it finishes long with wonderful purity and fragrant earth accents. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chateau Clinet checks in behind the 2015 and 2016 (and I suspect the 2018), yet it does well in the vintage. Based on 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in 72% new barrels (the estate has moved to using more 500-liter barrels), representing 80% of the production, its deep purple hue is followed by classic Clinet dark, chocolatey fruit and tobacco notes. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied Pomerol that has firm tannins, solid mid-palate density, and outstanding length. The tannins here will need 4-5 years of bottle age, and I’d lean toward drinking bottles over the following decade. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A fresh and fruity Clinet with tangy acidity highlighting the plum and cherry character. Reserved style. Medium body, creamy tannins and a delicious finish. Linear and focused in general. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Clinet was bottled at the end of June 2019. It has a more understated bouquet than the 2015 or 2016. Tightly wound, brambly black fruit with traces of pressed violet and iodine, gradually open with orange rind notes. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins. This is classic in style, firm grip and a little rigid in its youth, although it will flesh out with bottle age. I admire both the freshness and salinity in this Clinet, especially its linearity on the finish. Excellent. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The wine has deepened and taken on character during ageing, although it still doesn't have the power and intensity of the vintages on either side, but this is going to be delicious drinking over the coming 10 to 15 years. Clinet is always a safe bet for precision and it delivers this again. Drinking Window 2024 - 2040 (JA) Inner quote mark (9/2019)
