Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2016 Clio is a blend of 70% Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon that hits the scale at 16% alcohol, after a two-week fermentation in small vats with neutral yeasts. Fermentation finished in French and American oak barrels where the wine also underwent malolactic and 23 months' élevage. 2016 is a slightly weaker vintage, and the wine is quite impacted by the élevage, with plenty of spicy and smoky aromas and a lactic touch too. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with plenty of tannin and a finish dominated by oak-related flavors. Wait one more year. 50,000 bottles produced, half of which are destined for the US. It was bottled in September 2018.
