PRODUCT REVIEWS

Ronan by Clinet 2015 is drinking really well as is approaches full maturity - a beautiful, generous claret with bags of jammy merlot fruit crafted by the team from Château Clinet in their new, state-of-the art winery located in the heart of Pomerol - and from a great vintage. It’s terrific value for money.

And David Williams, The Guardians wine writer, agrees, adding 2015 Ronan to his list of just three best bargain wines from Bordeaux in May this year: The closest most ordinary wine lovers come to the Bordeaux top table these days is by sampling their diffusion lines, with Ronan from the team that makes Château Clinet, one of the leading estates in Pomerol in Bordeauxs Right Bank area, a satisfying 100% merlot snapshot of that estates sumptuous house style.

The wine is named for Ronan Laborde, the owner of the Pomerol star estate, Château Clinet. He uses his contacts and expertise to make a wine as close as he can to a Pomerol, from neighbouring vineyards, at a very much lower price than Pomerol itself. With his winemaking team from Château Clinet, he has risen to the challenge and established a much-envied reputation for Ronan by Clinet.

Tasting notes:
Deep red ruby with a rich and powerful fruit-driven nose. Great concentration, a long finish and drinking well already. Very well made, as you would expect from Château Clinet.

Critics reviews:
The prices of Bordeauxs elite have spiralled beyond the reach of most mere mortals over the past two decades. Even last year, when Covid-19-led economic uncertainty led to an average 21% drop in prices of the generally very good 2019 vintage, youre looking at several hundred quid a bottle for the biggest most in-demand names. Those wines are, to all intents and purposes, investment vehicles now rather than drinks, and theres something powerfully odd and sad in the idea of all those thousands of bottles of superlative wine sitting in cellars accumulating value rather than being poured and causing delight to drinkers. The closest most ordinary wine lovers come to the Bordeaux top table these days is by sampling their diffusion lines, with Ronan from the team that makes Château Clinet, one of the leading estates in Pomerol in Bordeauxs Right Bank area, a satisfying 100% merlot snapshot of that estates sumptuous house style.
Best bargain wines from Bordeaux, by David Williams, The Guardian, May 2021

"Quite a bargain this wine, coming from the director of the famous Pomerol estate Château Clinet. The 100% Merlot Bordeaux AOC made is silky-smooth claret with both black cherry and ripe plum on tea plate, balanced out by refreshing acidity. A juicy wine that invites drinking. One of my favorites from this blind tasting".
Decanter (90 points)

"The wine is ripe, rounded and with fine rich fruit. Its structure is balanced with the blackberry fruits, giving density as well as fine acidity."
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast
