2016 Ronan by Clinet, Bordeaux
2016 Ronan by Clinet, Bordeaux
With over two-and-a-half thousand bottles sold in the last year, this under-£15-claret from Ronan Laborde of Château Clinet fame simply will not quit. Ronan by Clinet will not quit with customers who have a penchant for luscious, ripe, 100%-merlot reds sourced from specially selected, Côtes-de-Bordeaux vineyards and made in a style akin to that great Pomerol château's much sought-after grand vin. Opulent, sumptuously styled, intensely delicious, here is a rich, powerful, fruit-driven nose and wonderful concentration of black cherry and plummy flavours to gratify the Pomerol fan.
Draped in layers of deep garnet, Ronan by Clinet 2016 exudes notes of dark blue and black berry fruit, with a splash of fresh raspberry, sweet spice and flinty notes. Creamy and generous on the palate, it unfolds flavours of red cherry, cranberry and blueberry. Roasted coffee and chocolate mingle within a complex palette of aromas that pleasantly prolong a moment of pure indulgence.
Ronan Laborde, Château Clinet
...a charming, already delicious effort that gives up elegant notes of chocolate-laced plums and dark fruits, notes of leafy herbs and truffle, medium to full body, and a layered, charming mouthfeel. Its a terrific Bordeaux to drink over the coming 7-8 years or so.
