Ronan by Clinet 2018, made by the wine making team at Château Clinet in Pomerol, is the perfect claret to drink with lamb on Easter Sunday. Read Tom Cannavans triumphant review just below and its clear why.

And why this Ronan vintage has earned its impressive 91/100-point score. For a wine at this price this is remarkable, and reinforces Ronans reputation as a top-drawer drinking claret, with the 2018 being their best vintage yet.

Made in the style of Clinet’s grand vin, Ronan shows a rich, powerful, fruit-driven nose and the wonderful concentration of black cherry and plummy flavours the Pomerol fan in you would expect.

Great price for a drinking now, sunday lunch claret.

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

"Made by Château Clinet of Pomerol, but from Right Bank vineyards outside of the appellation, this Merlot-based wine is another I've enjoyed in various vintages. There's a smooth and plush plum and chocolate character on the nose, dark and touched by espresso. It's all about swirling darkness really, but there are delightful little perfumed violet hints. On the palate the creamy, suave depth of the black fruit cashes the cheque promised by the nose: crushed black berries, a meaty and charry edge but well into the background, and a lovely support from the quite richly-framed tannins and acidity. Well-priced. Watch the video for more information."
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."
