2005 CHATEAU CLINET
"Exhibits subtle, complex aromas of black olive, mushroom and crushed berry. Full-bodied, with a velvety tannin structure and a decadent, ripe fruit aftertaste. Slightly earthy, but with loads of delicious fruit. Best after 2013. 2,915 cases made" -93 Points Wine Spectator
"We haven't seen a Clinet this good since the late Jean-Michel Arcaute's stunning duo of 1989 and 1990. This dense ruby/purple-tinged, exotic 2005 boasts soaring aromas of roasted herbs, plums, black currants, and caramelized chocolate. Savory, broad, and expansive with sensational purity, intensity, and length, this beauty possesses so much fruit and glycerin that it nearly hides the substantial tannins. Although performing exceptionally well at present, I suspect it will close down once it is put in a cold cellar. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2030." -92 Points Robert Parker
"Good full ruby. Sexy aromas of black raspberry liqueur, violet, chocolate, mocha and smoky oak. Dense, fat and large-scaled, with a layered texture and compelling sweetness of dark berry fruit. Very smooth if currently a bit youthfully monolithic. Finishes with substantial mouthcoating tannins that arrive late, allowing the chewy chocolate and mocha flavors to expand and linger. This will age on its alcohol and tannins, not its rather low acidity. Elevage should bring greater detail." -89-92 points- Stephen Tanzer- International Wine Cellar
"A ripe, rich, soft wine, oozing black jelly fruits and layered acidity. Almost ready to drink, it is a mouthful of delicious, dense fruits. This is a classic wine from Clinet, a property that always produces an opulent style of wine." -90 points Wine Enthusiast

"The average age of the vines is 40 years old in gravel mixed with clay soils. The wine is aged in 50% new barrels, 40% 1-year barrels, and 10% stainless steel barrels. Harvesting took place over 3 weeks, starting from September 9 in exceptional weather, allowing the grapes to be picked parcel by parcel as they reached optimum maturity. Fermentation lasted 3 weeks to compensate for a lack of nitrogen in the must due to the drought, so that the phenols could be extracted gently without impairing the purity of the fruit." -Winery
2000 LE MACCHIOLE PALEO ROSSO
"The 2000 Paleo, a classic Bordeaux blend in this vintage, shows a high toast, vanilla-laced nose of cassis, blackberries, and Cabernet Franc herbs, and a supple, well concentrated palate of ripe fruit, minerals, and tar. The depth and intensity of 1999 are not here, but no one else achieved them in 2000 either. Drink: 2005-2018." -91 points- Daniel Thomases- Wine Advocate
"Rich currant, blackberry and bark aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with loads of fruit and round, velvety tannins. Very long and rich. Paleo is slowly changing to a classic Bolgheri Cab blend, and the wine is much better. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2005. 3,000 cases made." -90 points Wine Spectator
"Blackish ruby. Sumptuous aromas of blackberry and cinnamon, with the tell-tale perfume of violet. A bit lean in the middle, but red berry, sage, mint and minerality convey a sense of structure and finesse. Firm, dusty tannins underlie raspberry, licorice and oak on the lingering finish." -90 points- Edward Beltrami- International Wine Cellar

"Named for the vineyard of its provenance, Paleo Rosso is the flagship wine for Le Macchiole and was the first wine in Bolgheri to made entirely from Cabernet Franc. Ruby red with violet flecks, its red fruit aroma offers notes of yellow and black pepper, tobacco, and nutmeg. Clean on the palate, it finishes with elegant minerality, ripe fruit, and a hint of balsamic."
"The vineyards are quarzite and arenaceous with calcareous deposits. The grapes are harvested from the 1st to 3rd weeks of September. The wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and is aged for 14-16 months in new oak barriques." -Importer
"Long before it was fashionable, Eugenio Campolmi saw the potential of his homeland, buying his first vineyard in Bolgheri in 1975 baptized 'Le Macchiole.' In 1987, he hired famed oenologist Vittorio Fiore as a consultant before the latter was joined by Luca d'Attoma four years later. In contrast to his renowned neighbors who focused on Bordeaux blends, Campolmi focused on achieving the purest expression of individual varieties, crafting distinct wines of unprecedented quality. Soon Le Macchiole joined Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and Guado al Tasso as one of the most prestigious estates in Bolgheri. Following Eugenio's death in 2002, his wife Cinzia Merli, who shares her husband's passion, took over at the estate. Working with Luca D'Attoma, she has carried on her husband's legacy by continuing to make great Tuscan wines." -Importer
