Winemaker Notes

Branded under the Bordeaux appellation, Ronan by Clinet is a vision of a new Bordeaux genre. This 100% Merlot wine is crafted by the team from CLINET in our new, state-of-the art winery located in the heart of Pomerol.
Ronan by Clinet is bright ruby in color, delicately spiced and fruit-forward with aromas of cherry, raspberry and blackcurrant. It is a soft and fresh wine with a balanced texture and a persistent, flavorsome finish.

Critical Acclaim

D 93
Expressive nose full of ripe red fruits and floral scents. The smooth, sappy red berry fruit is smooth and detailed, succulent, with tannins that are massy and chewy though also have a slightly chalky edge giving more texture and flavor detail. A 100% Merlot made by the same team as Chateau Clinet in Pomerol with a collection of growers across Bordeaux. Perfect for drinking, though with life in it yet.

The Merlot-dominated 2016 By Clinet (there's 5% Cabernet Franc) is 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. It's a terrific Bordeaux to drink over the coming 7-8 years or so.

Ronan by Clinet, France
RONAN BY CLINET was created in 2009 by Ronan Laborde, CEO of Château CLINET in Pomerol. In 2015, the team at CLINET placed this project firmly on the map with the construction of a new winery in the heart of Pomerol, dedicated entirely to RONAN BY CLINET, and designed to manage every stage of production from the receipt of the grapes to the shipping of the bottles.

Ronan by Clinet is an approachable wine that reflects the style and savoir-faire of a prestigious Pomerol winery. It is a fresh, fruit-forward and delicately spiced wine, ready to drink now or age for several years – the perfect choice for a spontaneous after-work treat or a dinner party with friends.

In most of France, wines are named by their place of origin and not by the type of grape (with the exception of Alsace). Just like a red Burgundy is by law, always made of Pinot noir, a red Bordeaux is a blended wine composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Depending on the laws of the village from which the grapes come, the conditions of the vintage and decisions of the winemaker, the blend can be further supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and in rare cases, Carmenere. So popular and repeated has this mix of grape varieties become worldwide, that the term, Bordeaux Blend, refers to a wine blended in this style, regardless of origin.
