At Château Clinet, everyone aspire to offer the best from the terroirs of Pomerol, with passion and know-how. «By Clinet», Pomerol was created to artfully blend the three different types of terroir that characterize Pomerol. Clinet works
with a selection of wine-growers to compose this original wine, including Chateau Clinet. The vinification and ageing are carried out by the same team and with as much attention as for the “Grand Vin”. Ageing in second-fill barrels brings out the freshness and finesse of the aromas.
Its atypical packaging makes it recognizable among all. Gordon Hopkins, who has illustrated By Clinet, is an American artist. His work finds its strength in his unique technique, setting layers of bold colours with oil bars and paint. Gordon’s work brings with it a sense of exploration, an interpretation of our surroundings from his point of view, filed with colour, movement and a sense of joy. Gordon Hopkins came to Clinet during summer 2017 and after a friendly lunch, he strolled through the vineyard of Pomerol. The small estates, crossed by country lanes and the gaiety of the summery scenery brought the inspiration to create this joyful patchwork.
At the tasting, By Clinet is a wine wrapped in layers of deep garnet. Complex flavours of dry red fruit, prune and Melanosporum truffle intertwine on the nose. Gentle, fruity and well-balanced on the palate, it develops into a lush aromatic palette of cranberry, redcurrant and fresh plum with hints of fresh hazelnut. A pure expression of the power and charm of the Pomerol terroir.
