CHÂTEAU CLINET wines are aged in barrels. Depending on the vintage year, the proportion of new oak varies around 60 percent, the remaining being one-year old barrels.
As an average, Château CLINET is aged in barrels for 16 months.
In order to obtain the desired organoleptic characteristics, CHÂTEAU CLINET mainly chooses barrels that come from the most beautiful French forests. The only exception is a small number from a top-flight Austrian cooper.
The aromatic compounds of the oak are thus graciously exploited to reinforce the elegance and caress of the tannins, whereas the barrel heating is well suited to the style and character of CHÂTEAU CLINET wines.
A minimum number of operations must be carried out during the ageing with the aim of maintaining the subtleties of production.
