1994 Clinet, Pomerol

SKU #199430 93 points Wine Spectator

 *Top 100 Wines of 1997* Exotic aromas of violets, berry and toasted oak waft from this full-bodied wine. Packed to the brim with fruit and tannins and impressively long on the finish. Superb red from a producer known for opulence. Better in 2000. (JS)  (1/1997)

91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Very good deep color. Superripe aromas of black raspberry and caramel. Lush and sweet in the mouth, with intriguing suggestions of iron and curry powder. A wine of huge extraction, but one that began with very strong raw material. Finishes with substantial chewy tannins and persistent flavor. (ST)  (5/1996)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Inky purple/garnet-colored, with an outrageously intense nose of black truffles, licorice, cedar, and black fruits, this phenomenally extracted wine borders on being too concentrated for its own good. This massive, huge wine possesses 20-25 years of potential longevity. The fruit’s remarkable intensity and purity, as well as the liqueur-like richness and unctuosity are something to experience. This is an exceptionally dense, massively-endowed, controversial style of Pomerol that will reward those with patience. The tannins are strong, but so is the extract level. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025. (RP)  (12/2002)

Jancis Robinson

 Dark, healthy, glowing ruby. Very fleshy yet not too sweet. Impressive mature nose. Very slightly tiring but extremely classical and noble. Finishes dry but is not drying. With food this could be very rewarding. In traditional mould. 18/20 points (JR)  (2/2011)

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.
