The latest issue of Decanter magazine just published, features the 30 best 'Great Value Clarets'. Our Ronan by Clinet 2016 came =1st in their tasting with a score of 93 points and is in the center of the front cover. Here is what Decanter say about it.

"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 flavour detail. A 100% Merlot made by the same team as Château Clinet in Pomerol with a collection of growers across Bordeaux. Perfect for drinking, though with life in it yet. Drink 2022-2026."

At £13.95 a bottle it is now our best-selling red wine. For those of you who want to stock up, we are also offering a special quantity discounts

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.

"An old favourite this, almost pure Merlot (with 5% Cabernet Franc) from the team at the famous Pomerol estate of Château Clinet, using fruit from surrounding Right Bank appellations. It's a brisk red and black-fruited style, focused on fruit and its tannin and acid structure rather than oak. Ther's a touch of leafiness, a little graphite and cedar, but its a relatively firm, chewy and gastronomic Bordeaux of good quality at a very fair price."
Tom Cannavan, Wine-pages.com
"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."
