Tasting notes

Robert Parker
Tasted: 01/04/2000
Drink: 2003-2012


The 1997 Clinet has turned out better than expected from barrel. Its exotic nose of truffles, vanilla, plum liqueur, black fruits, and Asian spices leads to a plump, fat wine with notes of coffee, coconut cream, and blackberries. Surprisingly dense, and revealing lots of tannin, it requires 1-2 years of cellaring, and should drink well for 10-12 years. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2012+.


Robert Parker
Tasted: 01/04/1999
Drink: 2003-2016


This wine appears to be going through a lighter stage than I remember from my earlier tasting. The wine exhibits a dark ruby/purple color, good fat and ripeness in the mouth, blackberry, truffle, and Asian spice characteristics, an expansive, open-knit style, but a short finish. My instincts suggest I caught this wine at an awkward stage of development since it did not reveal its earlier depth and intensity. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2016.
