Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Clinet 2013


Lobenberg: Noch ziemlich verschlossene Nase. Blumig, Veilchen, Jasmin aber auch gute dichte rote und schwarze Waldfrucht. Insgesamt aber fein. Der Mund ziemlich strukturiert, ziemlich fest. Mittlere Fülle bei hoher Mineralität. Nicht grün, aber sehr fest. Es fehlt ein bisschen die Wucht, das süße Fleisch in der Mitte. Auch in kleineren Jahren immer sehr guter Pomerol, einer der besten, ganz ohne Frage. Wenn der Preis stimmt eine Empfehlung. 92-93/100


Vinum über: Chateau Clinet

-- Vinum: Von umwerfender Klasse und schon fast beängstigender Perfektion. 18/20


Parker über: Chateau Clinet

-- Parker: A terrific success and star in this vintage, this blend of 90% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc came from a mere 25 acres of vineyard and averaged 33 hectoliters per hectare, with close to 13% natural alcohol. The entire harvest took place September 30-October 12. The wine is impressive in this vintage, its beautiful, dense, blue/black color is followed by a striking nose of creme de cassis, blackberry fruit, charcoal and a hint of camphor. The wine is rich and medium to full-bodied, displaying surprising texture, depth and breadth. This is a rich wine with good acidity and ripe tannin. It is a relatively big boy for the vintage and should drink well in 2-3 years and last up to 15 or more. It is so good, it is clearly a sleeper of the vintage, even though Clinet has been doing fabulous work for a number of years. 91-93/100


Suckling über: Chateau Clinet

-- Suckling: Aromas of black berry, blue berry, and wet earth. Full body, firm and silky tannins. A little hollow in the mid-palate but give it time to come together. Better in 2018. 91/100


Galloni über: Chateau Clinet

-- Galloni: The 2013 Clinet is terrific. Dark red and blue fruits, new leather, violets, menthol and sweet spices meld together in a wine of rare distinction for the year. This is one of the more pliant, expressive 2013s readers will come across. The finish is long, silky and polished. The oak needs time to fully integrated, but I don't think that is going to be a problem. This is a terrific showing. 90-93/100

Gabriel über: Chateau Clinet

-- Gabriel: 90 % Merlot, 9 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 1 % Cabernet Franc. Tiefes Purpur, satt in der Mitte, Granatschimmer am Rand. Fein rauchiges, schwarzberiges Bouquet, ansprechender Duft, recht vielschichtig. Saftiger, feiner Gaumen, schöne dunkle Aromatik, feine Schwarzteenoten und noble Schwarzschokobitterkeit. 17/20

NM über: Chateau Clinet

-- NM: A blend of 90% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1% Cabernet Franc (the highest percentage of Merlot ever) the Clinet 2013 was picked between 30 September until 12 October, finishing with the two Cabernets. Ronan Laborde told me that it was the most compact harvest he had undertaken: 4? days within 13 days, the fruit selected through an optical sorting machine. The level of new oak is 60%, up from 2012, because Jean-Michel thought the fruit was good enough, with an IPT of 85 compared to 75. The nose takes some time to unfurl, broody and reticent at first, revealing redcurrant and cranberry scents mixed with dried flowers with time. The palate is well balanced with quite linear tannins, the oak nicely integrated and lending this Clinet good depth. It is a more masculine Clinet without the length of a great Château Clinet, but clean and pure. It will need 5 or 6 years to unwind after bottling. Tasted April 2014. 90-92/100

Mein Winzer


Im Chateau Clinet treffen sich die drei Voraussetzungen, die einen großen Wein garantieren: Alte Reben, ein superbes Terroir und engagierte Arbeit in Keller und vor allem im natürlich organisch bewirtschafteten Weinberg.
