Wine AdvocateAnother extraordinary wine made in a backward vin de garde style, the 1995 Clinet represents the essence of Pomerol. The blackberry, cassis liqueur-like fruit of this wine is awesome. The color is saturated black/purple, and the wine extremely full-bodied and powerful with layers of glycerin-imbued fruit, massive richness, plenty of licorice, blackberry, and cassis flavors, full body, and a thick, unctuous texture. This is a dense, impressive offering from administrator Jean-Michel Arcaute. This wine should continue to improve for another 10-25 years. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025.

Wine SpectatorBlockbuster. The essence of berry, cherry and tobacco character. Full-bodied and very tannic, yet incredibly opulent. Long aftertaste of smoke, game, chocolate and fruit. Best after 2002.
