Chateau Clinet 2001
€ 101,64 (in Vat)
Always difficult to judge in its youth, the 2001 Clinet exhibits a dense plum/purple color along with a nose of Asian spices (particularly soy), blackberries, raisins, and a hint of prunes. Medium to full-bodied, with good expansiveness, moderate tannin, and an elegant finish, it should round into shape in 1-2 years, and evolve for a decade.
