Chateau Clinet is a relatively small property in Pomerol, home of the best Merlots made in the world. Over the last decade or so, it has risen to be amongst the top wines of the region. Only 9 hectares under vine, but the vineyard is located at the highest point of the Pomerol Plateau on the famous Gunz gravel terrace, origin of the appellation's most prestigious crus. Concentrated and rich with a touch of earthiness. Well balanced and full of finesse and a velvety mouthfeel. The 1995 is made of 80% Merlot with the rest split between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and is one of the great vintages of Clinet in the last 30 years.
