Ronan by Clinet Bordeaux Blanc 2014
The vineyard is situated between Sauternes and Saint-Emilion, on a promontory with steep slops on either side. The clay-and-limestone terroir, the orientation of the vines and the altitude 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. Not to forget with cheese! Serve 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 and 18°).
Tasting Notes 2014
A bright golden hue, as a pleasant introduction to a fine wine. Hints of yuzu, grapefruit, white flowers, passion fruit , a succession of aromas, all promising freshness, elegance and complexity.
Flavours of citrus, white-fleshed fruits and warm spices fill the mouth. Ronan By Clinet White is fleshy yet crisp and clean.

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.
