1988 Clinet

Average critic rating : 91.5 points



The 1988 is a dazzling example of Clinet. Its color is a deep black/purple, and the bouquet exhibits the classic Pomerol scents of truffles, plums, subtle herbs, and new oak. The wine makes a huge impression, with a sweetness, rich extraction of fruit, and a full-bodied, opulent finish. This ripe, dense, fruity 1988 has shed its tannin quickly. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. Last tasted, 6/93. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 88



What a wild and exotic wine. Intense aromas of truffles and cèpe, with raspberry jam. Cigar tobacco as well. Full-bodied, with powerful flavors of raspberry jam and hints of cooked fruit, chocolate. Long and flavorful. Soft and seductive.¿'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. 2,600 cases made. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2009
