"This Clinet is striking. Energetic, tense and wiry, the 2014 jumps from the glass with notable intensity. The tannins are quite evident, as is the acidity, but there is a level of harmony here that is impossible to miss. Red currant, sweet red cherry, tobacco, smoke and white pepper add nuance on the pulsating finish. I imagine the 2014 is going to require quite a bit of time, but it is compelling, even at this early stage. 90% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc. This is a fabulous showing from Clinet and proprietor Ronan Laborde."
