Château Clinet Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

$99.95

Another resounding success for the vintage, the opaque purple-colored 2008 Clinet (14.4% alcohol) is composed of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon... Another powerful, big, large-scaled effort, the 2008 exhibits an inky/purple color as well as sweet creme de cassis, blackberry, plum, Asian spice, licorice and incense notes. Layered and full-bodied with stunning purity and a 40+ second finish... Robert Parker

An elegant and restrained Clinet, not as brooding as more recent vintages. Maybe it is their youth but this is indeed a mellower version. Though make no mistake on the complexity, the volume is just a little lower right now. I was a little disappointed, still enjoyable, but if you don't have a deep stock I'd wait another 2 years or more for maturity to add tertiary layers to the mix. Currants, cassis, some cherry and blackberry in in a fresh style, with the classic silk-like Pomerol tannin. #clinet #pomerol #bordeaux #merlot
