Ronan by Clinet - Bordeaux Rouge 2015
What a superb little wine! This is 100% Merlot from a variety of appellations on the north bank of the estuary are handled with extreme care and attention. Oak aged to soften the tannins, the nose is expressive with plenty of raspberry, blackberry and cherry fruit with hints of flowers such as violets. On the palate it is deliciously fruity with good structure and excellent acid balance with some fine notes of spices in the finish. Persistent and toothsome. An excellent job from this top producer who built a winery in Pomerol specifically for the production of this little gem.
