More about this Producer
Since the 19th century, successive generations of families have taken over the ownership and management of Château CLINET, all committed to perfecting the quality of its production and stamping their own identity on this bijou estate. Today it is owned by the Laborde family who, since 1998, have set Clinet on a firm footing alongside the best of the Pomerol appellation.
The name CLINET can be read “Cliné” on the Belleyme map of 1785 where it appears among a cluster of wines around the ancienne église. The name could derive from the old French ‘cliner’, used during the 16th century. The word meant to ‘bow’ or ‘lean’ – possibly a reference to the slope, which runs down from the famous Plateau de Pomerol, providing natural drainage.
