Château Clinet


Pomerol AOC

Château Clinet is located in the heart of the Pomerol appellation. Since the 19th century, successive generations of families have taken over the ownership and running of Château Clinet, all committed to perfecting the quality of its production. For much of the 20th century ownership rested in the hands of the Audy family. The arrival of Jean-Michel Arcaute, the owner’s son-in-law, as head manager of the estate in the 1980’s marked a real turning point. He revolutionized the management of the vineyard and the name of Clinet became renowned throughout the world. In 1998, the château  was bought by Jean-Louis Laborde. He devoted all his energy and vision to pursuing the evolution inspired by the preceding master of the estate. Nowadays the property is run by his son, Ronan.

Grape Varieties:

90% Merlot – 9% Cabernet Sauvignon – 1% Cabernet Franc


The vines aged of 40 years grow on a ancient gravel and deep clay soil of 27 acres.


The fermentation takes place in wooden casks and stainless steel vats with a manual punching down, then it lays 22 months in oak barrels.

Tasting note:

The nose offers flavors of raspberry jam, blackberries, plum and liquorice. Then the palate reveals toasted bread, brown sugar and Jamaican pepper and includes hints of cherries and forest fruits with a rising intensity.

Food pairing:

This wine will match with gravy  spit-roasted lamb, and beef fillet, along with pan-fried boletus mushrooms and potatoes, but it will be perfect with Pata Negra ham or cheeses.
