94 Neal Martin – (Februari 2023)
The 2020 Clinet has held on to that precious bouquet with heady scents of black plum, cassis and fresh fig, more blue fruit percolating through with time. Remarkably, it retains fine delineation and disguises that payload of 15% alcohol. The palate is intense on the entry, quite structured, and granular in texture, with a healthy dose of cracked black pepper and a grippy but pure finish. The 20% Cabernet Sauvignon is crucial in keeping this Clinet on an even keel, with traces of graphite towards the fresh finish. It will benefit from several years in bottle but stands as a very fine Pomerol, but unequivocally no shy wallflower. Drink 2027-2055.

94-96 Neal Martin – (Mei 2021)
The 2020 Clinet was picked September 14–17 for the Merlot and September 24 for the Cabernet Sauvignon, at 38hl/ha, and matured in 80% new oak. Its 15.0° alcohol is the highest ever. The bravura nose delivers copious black cherries, blueberry and violet aromas that explode from the glass. This is a Pomerol that really wants to make an impression. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins, hints of chocolate chip infusing the mixture of black and blueberry fruit. Lavish and satiny in texture toward the long finish. This is a bold and extravagant Clinet that I hope will just find a little refinement and more terroir expression during its élevage. If it does, it should land at the top of my banded score. Drink 2027 - 2055.
95 Antonio Galloni – (Februari 2023)
The 2020 Clinet is hugely impressive, as it was from barrel. Dark and imposing, with notable vibrancy, the 2020 offers up an exotic mélange of black cheerry, gravel, incense, plum, game and licorice. I would gice this a few years in bottle, as the tannins are pretty imposing. Cabernet Sauvignon is so distinctive here. Drink 2027-2050.

93-95 Antonio Galloni – (Mei 2021)
The 2020 Clinet is a gorgeous, vivid Pomerol. Today, the Clinet feels a bit closed in on itself, but has terrific energy and plenty of drive. Dark cherry jam, mocha, rose petal, new leather and tobacco start to open with a bit of time in the glass. Readers will have to be patient here. There is plenty to look forward to. Drink 2030 - 2060.
95 Jane Anson – (Februari 2023)
Broad shouldered, muscular with black cherry, damson and raspberry coulis, cocoa bean, espresso classic Clinet precision and heft, punch and power, a ton of quality Pomerol signature. 38hl/ha yield.

95 Jane Anson – (Mei 2021)
Deep cherry damson red in colour, clear depth. Touches of kicking spice right from the start, I like the surprise of the battle between richness and bitterness. It feels like a heavy blanket of fruit which is burrowing down but then kicks off to let the air in alongside velvet stroking tannins, very Pomerol with coffee and chocolate. Feels confident and powerful, good stuff, if broad shouldered. A yield of 38 hl/ha. Will see at least 16 months in barrel. Tasted twice, also at Pomeol Seduction; and this is a big, seductive wine. Drinking Window 2029 – 2044.
94 William Kelley - (April 2023)
The 2020 Clinet offers up aromas of minty cherries, blackberries and cassis mingled with hints of licorice, loamy soil and rose petals. Full-bodied, broad and rich, with a layered mid-palate underpinned by powdery tannins that assert themselves on the youthfully firm finish, it's impressively balanced for a wine at 15% alcohol, but it remains a rather burly, powerful Clinet. Drink 2025-2045.

Ronan Laborde is producing the best wines of his career at this Pomerol reference point. Some eight hectares produce Clinet, with much of the vineyards being located around the château in the lieu-dit that lends it its name, complemented by a parcel by the church and another not far from the headquarters of the syndicat viticole. Today, these holdings are planted with some 80% Merlot, but before phylloxera, Cabernet Sauvignon was widely planted in this sector. Now, Laborde is replacing Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon (he retains a parcel of old-vine Cabernet Sauvignon dating back to 1950). Vines are hedged at 1.5 meters, and cover crops help to manage water in the iron-rich clays near the château, allowing access by tractor even after recent rainfall. In the winery, Laborde now employs small stainless steel tanks that permit parcel-by-parcel vinification, and a vertical press has been the order of the day since as long ago as 2001. What's really evolved in recent years is the barrel program. Oak is long-seasoned (4-5 years), and some large formats have joined the classic 225-liter barriques. But above all, lighter, less impactful toasts are now chosen, meaning Clinet's 80% new oak is much more discreet in its aromatic and textural contribution than was the case a decade ago. The 2020 is a big, powerful wine, but it holds it together.

96-98 Lisa Perrotti-Brown – (Mei 2021)

The 2020 Clinet (a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon) has an opaque purple-black color, needing a little coaxing to unleash bold, powerful notes of plum preserves, blueberry compote and black raspberries, followed by suggestions of cracked black pepper, menthol, cedar chest and rose oil with a hint of licorice. The big, rich, full-bodied palate is a powerhouse, bursting with impactful black and blue fruit preserves flavors, supported by ripe, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and fantastically perfumed. Drink 2027 – 2057.
98 James Suckling - (December 2022)

96-97 James Suckling – (April 2021)

This is extremely polished with ultra fine tannins that are so exquisite, giving this a seamless and weightless mouth feel. Medium-bodied, extremely long and harmonious.
96-98 Jeb Dunnuck – (Mei 2021)
17/20 Julia Harding MW – (Mei 2021)
Full bottle 1,360 g. Cask sample taken 6 April. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Vines 39 years old. Very dark right to the purplish rim. Rich and sumptuous aroma of pure, sweet, black fruit, entwined with oak's sweet spice. Powerful and a little charry on the palate, the tannins thick and compact but already smooth. A big, alcoholic beast of a wine but ends with unexpected freshness, and, even with this high alcohol, just about in balance. Long, chewy finish. Wholesome, powerful. 15.5%. Drink 2030 – 2044.

97 Ella Lister – (April 2023) - «Racé, précis»
Un nez racé, précis, de petits fruits noirs et de mirabelles, avec en bouche un éclat sur le fruit rouge acidulé, des notes poivrées, une texture sensuelle, fraîche et minérale, et une finale déjà longue, et tout aussi envoûtante.

Chateau Clinet in Pomerol is eigendom van een bijzonder sympathieke en ambitieuze marathonloper, Ronan Laborde. Zijn excellente, ernstige en intense wijnen zijn "incontournables". De kleine wijngaard van 10,74 hectare is een patchwork van percelen op klei en graves aan de rand van het plateau van Pomerol nabij l’Eglise Clinet, Clos l’Eglise en Feytit Clinet. 88% Merlot en 12% Cabernet Sauvignon (en geen Cabernet Franc meer sinds 2018) aangeplant op een densiteit van 6.600 tot 7.200 wijnstokken per hectare (voor de meest recente aanplantingen). De gemiddelde leeftijd van de wijngaard was 41 jaar in 2018. Er wordt gewerkt in lutte raisonnée, zonder gebruik van nadelige CMR-producten (carcinogic, mutagenic or reprotoxic). De wijnranken worden geleid tot 1,75m hoogte. De productie beperkt zich tot 4.000 kisten. De wijnjaren 1989 en 2009 werden bekroond met perfecte parkerscores. Michel Rolland is hier de consulent.
