Tasting Notes and Scores

Neal Martin

The 2009 Climens is certainly more expressive on the nose compared to the 2010 Climens with potent honeysuckle, fresh pear and orange blossom that gently unfurl from the glass. Compared to the 2009 Rieussec for example, this is powerful but not quite as flamboyant. The palate is just fantastic, so energetic and tensile with layers of minerally, honeyed fruit laced with spice, sea salt, a touch of licorice and quince. It will be a multi-dimensional Climens that has a very long future ahead, a killer Sauternes that is going to give a great deal of pleasure over many years. Tasted April 2016.

Various lots ranging from the moderately sweet, delicate and fine; to the intensely sweet, very rich and very complex. Berenice Lurton’s view is: “2009 Climens is definitely in the ranks of the greatest Climens in history.” It will doubtless be excellent, though in quite what way we shall have to wait and see.
