Château Clinet

The winery is located near the church of Pomerol (Bordeaux) in the same area. After several changes of ownership in the last 150 years, it was for a long time owned by the trading house Audy in Libourne. In 1985, the well-known oenologist Michel Rolland engaged as a consultant, who introduced quality-enhancing measures such as late harvest, long mash times and maturation in new oak barrels, and greatly reduced the Cabernet share in the vineyards. In 1998, the estate was acquired by Jean-Louis-Laborde (+2001), who died in an accident three years later. Since 2003 it is run by Ronan Laborde. The vineyards cover nine hectares of vineyards 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 one-third new oak barrels. The second wine is called "Fleur de Clinet".
