When Jean-Louis Laborde bought Château CLINET back in 1999, his son Ronan was just 19 years old. Before that, they had travelled together to Argentina, looking at potential vineyards to purchase but destiny brought them back to Bordeaux, when the perfect property presented itself for sale.
As soon as Ronan finished his studies, now aged 23, he became highly involved in the day-to-day management of CLINET, to the point that his father was soon able to comfortably take a step back and return to his former businesses.
For the past 10 years, Ronan has devoted his life to producing the best quality wines, establishing gentle farming and vinification methods that respect the remarkable nature of the vineyard.
A passion for quality
It didn’t take long for Ronan to see the full potential of CLINET, his instincts and expertise confirming that this château was worthy of worldwide recognition. For the past 10 years, he has devoted his life to producing the best quality wines, establishing gentle farming and vinification methods that respect the remarkable nature of the vineyard.
He has also implemented marketing targets, which provide clear communication based on transparency and the distribution of exceptional, yet affordable wines. A graduate of EDC Business School and the first generation of the Laborde family to be involved in wine production, Ronan is a genuine entrepreneur. The wine RONAN BY CLINET is probably the finest example of this and comes as a result of his open mindedness: How to offer an approachable, appealing wine to please as many people as possible, with the guarantee of style and durable quality, made by a highly qualified team?
The way has now been paved, with a community of loyal and trusted friends and partners throughout the world, which strengthens our desire to do better every day. Ronan’s inspirational leadership has enabled a committed team to develop alongside him, helping to drive forward new projects and maintain the high standards of a Grand Cru.
