2012 vintage now available

PRESS RELEASE. For immediate release – 24th November 2014

Clinet is pleased to announce the launch of Ronan By Clinet 2012 and has been speaking more about its plans to develop this innovative brand over the coming 12 months.

This latest vintage is, once again, 100% merlot sourced from exactly the same producers as in 2011. Price remains very stable for the fourth consecutive year and 360,000 bottles are now available for sale in 66 countries worldwide.

Ronan By Clinet 2012 is somewhat fresher than its predecessor and very fruit forward with strong hints of cherry, raspberry and blackcurrant. Due to slightly cooler meteorological conditions, this wine is less spicy than the previous vintage. Alcohol levels also returned to 13 degrees this year, as compared to the 14 degrees which resulted from the hot summer of 2011.

With its brand new winery due for completion in April 2015, this coming year promises to see Ronan By Clinet build on the constant growth it has enjoyed since 2009. These new facilities will help pave the way for future expansion offering storage for 700,000 bottles as well as a new laboratory, workshop, high tech barrel cellar and large reception rooms, which offer stunning terrace views over Pomerol.

Ronan Laborde, CEO of SARL Groupe Clinet, commented: “Ronan By Clinet continues to reflect the style and technical know-how of Clinet, whilst offering exceptional value for money. We are very excited about the 2012 vintage and look forward to working with our growing distribution channel around the world to increase the reach of this wine.”


History of Ronan By Clinet

Ronan By Clinet was the vision of owner and CEO of Clinet, Ronan Laborde, who in 2009 was looking to extend the range of production of this relatively small Pomerol estate.

The team at Clinet brings its technical savoir-faire in quality wine production, working in partnership with producers from neighbouring terroirs, which include Côtes de Castillon, Bourg and Bordeaux. The result is a delicately spiced, fruit forward wine which combines the style, innovation and tradition of Clinet as well as offering exceptional value for money.
