In C18th Clinet and Pétrus were under the same ownership. Jean-Louis Laborde bought the estate in 1998. His son Ronan, could have been a marathon runner, instead he took over management in 2004 and made his life’s work the return of Clinet to its previous position as one of the very top wines of Pomerol.
