    Climens

    Chateau Climens dates back to 1547 and has been one of Barsac’s most popular producers for years. Ironically, the name means unfertile land in a local dialect, yet it is blessed with excellent terroir for Sauternes. On very high ground the vineyard has excellent drainage helping create rich, elegant and refined wine.

    Climens 1947 (1x75cl)

    Vinous - Neal Martin (95)

    Two bottles recently tasted, one in Beaune and the other rounding off a Saint-Émilion vertical in London. It is a famous vintage for Climens although I wonder whether it now matches the awe-inspiring '49? The second bottle is just as I expected. Deep auburn and slightly burnished in colour, it has a showy bouquet of mango chutney, syrup of fig and quince that might not boast the delineation of the '49, but who cares? The palate is unctuous on the entry, lower in acidity compared to coeval vintages, with mango, honey, quince and marmalade generously lacquered upon the persistent and unctuous finish. Though, there is nothing wrong with this bottle, from experience I know you might chance upon bottles that are better. Tasted at La Trompette restaurant in London.

    Wine Advocate (97)

    Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Climens just soars from the glass with layers of clear honey, marmalade, nectarine and minerals all beautifully carved. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh, vibrant honeyed fruit that builds and builds in the mouth in tandem with a killer line of acidity. Even though it is a convincing, great Climens, you also have the impression that it is only just beginning to show what it is capable of. Bérénice Lurton and her team excelled in this vintage and it comes strongly recommended.

    Climens 2007 (12x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (98)

    Tasted single blind against its peers. Chateau Climens always tends to go into its shell after bottling, which is probably why I was not dishing out an even higher score to this still, spellbinding Barsac. The 2007 is endowed with a lovely bouquet: very pure with honey, a touch of orange-blossom and a touch of quince. The palate is very well-balanced with great purity and a dash of spice as well as a lovely viscous, botrytis-laden finish that possesses awesome weight and persistency. This is a slice of heaven in a glass, but it definitely needs time to reveal its true potential. Tasted January 2011.

    Wine Enthusiast (98)

    97-99 Barrel sample. A tasting from several barrels, because the chateau has not made the final blend, so the rating is provisional. But the wine is so rich, with an almost perfect balance of acidity and ripeness, allied to a complete purity of honeyed botrytis. However the final wine turns out, it will be magnificent.

    Wine Advocate (96)

    Pale lemon-gold colored, the 2010 Climens reveals a seriously intense nose of mango pudding, warm pineapples and pink grapefruit with hints of exotic spices, toasted almonds and brioche plus a waft of honeycomb. Powerfully flavored and packed with layers of tropical fruits, spices and earthy notes, it finishes epically long and honeyed.

    Wine Spectator (93)

    This pulls together lush pineapple, ginger, creamed apricot and peach notes, along with singed almond and bitter orange hints. Stays broad and rich overall, but there's good cut underneath and some power that will need a bit of time to mellow. An excellent effort for the vintage. All Sémillon. Best from 2017 through 2027. 1,415 cases made.

    Wine Advocate (96+)

    Pale lemon-gold colored, the 2016 Climens is a little youthfully mute, revealing notions of ripe peaches, mango and musk melon with touches of cedar chest, orange blossoms, candied ginger and baking bread. Bursting in the mouth with vibrant, energetic stone fruit and tropical layers, it is framed by fantastic freshness, finishing long and creamy.
