Commentaire The 2014 Clinet was a wine that perplexed when I tasted it from barrel and as a consequence, it was one that I went back and retasted three or four times during that primeur campaign. Now in bottle, the bouquet has improved and developed more fruit concentration, armed with red plum, wild strawberry and blueberry scents. The palate is medium-bodied and quite refined, certainly not as opulent as other vintages from the estate, perhaps just missing a persistence on the angular finish. It is not a bad Clinet by a long stretch, it just feels a little constricted, especially compared to say the 2010 or 2015. I tasted this on three occasions, drawing the same conclusion each time.
Commentaire Le vignoble se trouve dans l'ouest de la commune, où il occupe un terroir de vieilles graves sur des argiles profondes, avec présence de crasses de fer en sous-sol. L'encépagement fait honneur au merlot, cépage phare de la Rive Droite qui représente ici 85 % de la surface, avec également 10 % de cabernet sauvignon et 5 % de cabernet franc.
