Tasting Notes and Scores

94-96 RP

Cropped at ten hectoliters per hectare, this represents the first certified organic Chateau Climens. As usual, I have to conjecture how the final blend will manifest itself, a task becoming easier now that I have tasted through individual lots for several years. Clearly, the first tries contain zesty citrus fruit with crisp acidity and strong botrytis character, the second tries lending the structure and the Barsac/Climens character. I noticed a "marine" influence on the final tries picked on October 21 and 23, although here there is a slight attenuation. Putting all this together, I foresee an assured, perhaps slightly lighter but tensile Climens, with the more heavily botrytized fruit delivered toward the end. Quality is certainly on par with a very good vintage, the most impressive lots destined to form major components of the final blend. This ought to be a classic Climens. - Neal Martin (eRobertParker.com) (April 2014)

100% Sémillon. At the time of tasting, this wine was unblended, so this is an amalgamated note from several barrel samples.
There is plenty of botrytic influence on display, and quite a muscular structure too. The texture is chewy and pithy with flavours ranging from floral to lemon and apple fruit with treacle and golden syrup sweetness throughout. The samples display plenty of acidity, and there is no question the component parts have all the makings of great Sauternes. This mark is likely to be conservative, then, assuming that the blending is done as well as can be expected from this estate. (RH)
