£26.95 £16.95

This wine has been selected as part of our ‘guest’ wine range due to its quality and artisanal approach to winemaking. Ronan by Clinet is in essence the third wine of Chateau Clinet, although the fruit is collected from parcels on the edge of Pomerol. The 2009 Ronan by Clinet has become sought after and we are the only retailer to list this vintage in the UK. The weather in 2009 was kind to Bordeaux, and it will go down in history as being a rich, fruit- forward vintage to rank among the very best.

Tasting notes

This is by far the most intense and juicy vintage of Ronan by Clinet. The nose delivers a full spectrum of black fruit with a whiff of tobacco, cedar, vanilla, toast and iron fillings. The juiciness opulence of 2009 is not lost on the palate; as there’s a core of beautifully ripe black fruit with a solid backbone of fine tannin. The finish lends cedar and spicy plum. Ronan by Clinet 2009 will show well after an hour or so in an decanter, but it possesses sufficient structural integrity and concentration of fruit to warrant another year in the cellar.
