Ronan by Clinet (Red 2015 or White 2018)
Ronan Farrow (son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen) came to mind when we first learned about this wine. But that was gone soon enough, especially after seeing this film. So proud was the owner of Château Clinet of his newest label that he wanted no other name on the bottle but his own.
Ronan Laborde of famed Château Clinet in Pomerol has selected the grapes from some of the Right Bank's best vineyards and blended them at Château Clinet's state of the art winery in Pomerol. Ronan has quickly become one of the favourites at the best restaurants and hotels in Paris.
This 100% Merlot (if you buy the red), shows a brilliant ruby colour and on the nose there is cherry, raspberry and blackcurrants with notes of sweet pepper. In the mouth the wine reveals a sweet fruitiness, with flavours of raspberry, fresh cherry and redcurrants, complemented with fine spices and light to medium tannins. The finish is long and fruity.
Produced from 70% Sauvignon Blanc & 30% Semillon, Ronan Blanc glows in pale gold. Distinct aromas of strawberry and citrus fruits are complemented by a nice mineral tone and the finish is bright and fresh, inviting another sip, and then please, another.
