    (Château Clinet) Very dark red violet color; entrancing, cedar, pencil lead, ripe red currant nose; oak more noticeable on palate, ripe red currant, cedar palate; needs 4-plus years to integrate the oak; long finish (85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc)

    (Chateau Clinet (Pomerol)) Yield 39 hl/ha. A particularly dark and concentrated wine here, with a deep purple-black hue right out to rim. The fruit is just explosive, with creamy vanilla tinges on top of dark, macerated fruit skins, all plum and damson and cherry, with a sweet but sooty edge on the side. A polished start in the mouth, very bold, with quite a firm shell around the edges, indicative of rather firm alcohol? Creamy fruit underneath though, full and broad, and the tannins although very firm are nicely composed within the wine, Good acidity. Lots of crunchy tannin coming in at the finish. Lots of extract here but it is very well integrated into the wine. Impressive and a great effort from Clinet.
