Modest but sure of its presence, Clinet lies at one of the highest points upon the renowned plateau at the heart of Pomerol. This vineyard is equally famed for offering wine with an incomparable character and quality.
1986 Jean Michel was running the property. He engaged the services of cult oenologist Michel Rolland, who introduced much later harvesting, ensuring super-ripe fruit, as well as extending the amount of time the wines spent in 100% new oak barriques. Within 5 years, Clinet's wine were being compared to those of Petrus, Lafleur and le Pin and selling for similar prices.
