The new 2016 vintage Ronan by Clinet has just been released and it's now in our warehouse - it's a lovely, exotic and generous classic claret with bags of jammy merlot fruit from this 10/10 vintage. And it’s terrific value for money. Ronan Laborde, the owner of Château Clinet, one of Pomerol's finest estates, decided 11 years ago to make a wine as close as he could to a good Pomerol from neighbouring appellations at a very much lower price than Pomerol itself commands. With the winemaking team from Clinet, he set about the task and has established a much envied reputation for Ronan by Clinet.

Deep red ruby with a rich and powerful fruit-driven nose. Great concentration, a long finish and drinking well already. Very well made, as you would expect from Château Clinet.

Great price for a drinking now, sunday lunch claret.

A full flavoured Merlot with no rough edges and medium length of flavour. Satisfying.

"The prices of Bordeaux's elite have spiralled beyond the reach of most mere mortals over the past two decades. Even last year, when Covid-19-led economic uncertainty led to an average 21% drop in prices of the generally very good 2019 vintage, you're looking at several hundred quid a bottle for the biggest most in-demand names. Those wines are, to all intents and purposes, investment vehicles now rather than drinks, and theres something powerfully odd and sad in the idea of all those thousands of bottles of superlative wine sitting in cellars accumulating value rather than being poured and causing delight to drinkers. The closest most ordinary wine lovers come to the Bordeaux top table these days is by sampling their diffusion lines, with Ronan from the team that makes Château Clinet, one of the leading estates in Pomerol in Bordeaux's Right Bank area, a satisfying 100% merlot snapshot of that estates sumptuous house style."
Best bargain wines from Bordeaux, by David Williams, The Guardian, May 2021
"Quite a bargain this wine, coming from the director of the famous Pomerol estate Château Clinet. The 100% Merlot Bordeaux AOC made is silky-smooth claret with both black cherry and ripe plum on tea plate, balanced out by refreshing acidity. A juicy wine that invites drinking. One of my favorites from this blind tasting"
Decanter (90 points)
"The wine is ripe, rounded and with fine rich fruit. Its structure is balanced with the blackberry fruits, giving density as well as fine acidity."
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast
