Chateau Clinet

The estate is located near the church of Pomerol (Bordeaux) in the area of the same name. After several changes of ownership in the past 150 years, it was long owned by the Audy trading house in Libourne. In 1985 the well-known oenologist Michel Rolland engaged as a consultant who introduced quality-enhancing measures such as late harvest, long mashing times and maturation in new oak barrels, as well as greatly reducing the proportion of Cabernet in the vineyards. In 1998 the estate was acquired by Jean-Louis-Laborde (+2001), who died three years later in an accident. It has been managed by Ronan Laborde since 2003. The vineyards cover nine hectares of vines in the Graves terraces and are planted with the varieties Merlot (75%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Cabernet Franc (10%). The long-lived red wine is aged in a third of new barriques. The second wine is called "Fleur de Clinet".
