Ronan By Clinet Blanc, Bordeaux 2019
The winemaking team at Château Clinet in Pomerol have created a star with their red Ronan by Clinet. Their white Ronan is now not far behind and the 2019 vintage is a superb sauvignon/semillion blend from the highest (limestone and clay) vineyards between Saint-Émilion and Sauternes.
At our recent blind tasting of 20 good quality white Bordeaux, Ronan came out top it was fresh, full-bodied with a touch of honey and citrus fruits. All together a very complete and highly drinkable white wine.
Bravo to Ronan Laborde and his team at Clinet.
What do the critics say?
"This is a very interesting style, fairly weighty and round,... this more luxurious style matches better with the Clinet signature. Its fairly rare to find this style of white Bordeaux, with lemon rind and orange blossom. Recommended." (Review on the previous vintage).
