Region: AC Bordeaux ( Pomerol )
Chateau Clinet’s youngest sibling by estate’s owner, Ronan Laborde. As the vineyards producing the Ronan are located just outside Pomerol, the wine is only AC Bordeaux, but undoubtedly delivers the quality we have come to associate with this great appellation, without the price tag. ‘Ronan By Clinet’ is made in the same way, in the same style, at the same place, by the same people as the Grand Vin. “ Made from 100% Merlot, this is a lovely, open, silky-smooth claret with a touch of fresh, red fruit on the nose, a deep black cherry palate and a minty clean crunch of tannin and acidity on the finish. This is a long, suave wine with lip-smacking acidity and controlled alcohol. It is also a total and utter bargain (as you know inexpensive claret is usually a horribly disappointing category)” – Matthew Jukes.
