The history behind the wine
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’.
Fleur de Clinet was created in 2006, artfully blending the three different types of terroir that characterize Pomerol.
Ageing in second-fill barrels brings out the freshness and finesse of the aromas.
