Tasting Notes

Always difficult to judge in its youth, the 2001 Clinet exhibits a dense plum/purple color along with a nose of Asian spices (particularly soy), blackberries, raisins, and a hint of prunes. Medium to full-bodied, with good expansiveness, moderate tannin, and an elegant finish, it should round into shape in 1-2 years, and evolve for a decade.

Looks quite evolved at the rim. Round and relatively light but pleasant – sort of Feytit Clinet style. Lots of energy here. Even if not desperately sophisticated.
