Tasting Notes

This is the greatest Clinet since the incredible duo made by the late Jean-Michel Arcaute in 1989 and 1990. The dense purple-colored 2008 offers up beautiful floral, blackberry, and pen ink-like notes, exceptional intensity, that multilayered texture that seems to be commonplace in the top 2008 Pomerols, silky but elevated tannins, good freshness, precision, and nuance, a substantial size, and an extremely long finish with not a hard edge to be found. It should evolve for 30+ years.

Score: 94 - 97

Full ruby-red. Aromas of black cherry, balsamic vinegar and minerals. Offers a rich mouthfeel, with pure, fresh balsamic plum and black cherry flavors nicely framed by strong acidity. Finishes with impressive persistence, although some biting tannins currently detract from the wine's overall charm.

Score: 88 - 90
