Ronan by Clinet Bordeaux Blanc 2013
The vineyard is situated at the highest point of the Gironde region, between Sauternes and Saint-Emilion. The location provides a fabulous view. The clay-and-limestone terroir, the orientation of the vines and the altitude (145m) combine to produce remarkable white wines.
Ronan by Clinet White is delicious as an aperitif. Also a perfect match for pasta dishes, fish or poultry, grilled or in a sauce. Serve lightly chilled at 10°-12°C.
Sustainable viticulture methods are employed. Stainless steel vats are used for the vinification and ageing with skin-contact maceration and low-temperature alcoholic fermentation (between 16 et 18°).
Tasting Notes 2013
An appetising pale gold colored wine, with a platinum glow. Mouth-watering scents of candy, boiled sweets are lifted by blossom, lime and mature white-fleshed fruits.
In the mouth, the first impression comes from the fleshy, creamy texture. Then the white and zingy citrus fruits step in, seasoned by cardamone and saffron threads. Just like the vintage 2012, this wine is quite unique.

Thoughts on the 2012: This is a very interesting style, fairy weighty and round,... this more luxurious style matches better with the Clinet signature. It’s fairly rare to find this style of white Bordeaux, with lemon rind and orange blossom,... 15.75/20. Recommended. Drink 2013-2016.
