This vintage for Climens goes from strength to strength. The yields, which we a microscopic 10 hectolitres per hectare, have produced nearly 3,000 cases of a spectacular wine that has a medium-deep gold colour and a gorgeous nose of honeysuckle, vanilla, pineapple, acacia, creme brulee, and roasted nuttiness. In the mouth, it is full bodied, atypically powerful for a Climens (the residual sugar of 130 grams per litre is very high for this estate), and the massive finish goes on for well over a minute. In spite of such exceptional richness, there is good acidity, giving the wine uplift and definition. Anticipated maturity: now-2035.
