Tasting Notes: Wine Spectator 94 Points: “Barrel tasting: Lemon, honey, mineral and light spice. Very attractive aromas. Full-bodied, with fresh acidity and a long finish where it turns to spice and toffee”. (JS) 2003

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 91 Points: “The nose is rather closed on this Climens, which I think is going through an adolescent dumb period. Faint hints of candle wax and a hint of petrol, slight Germanic in style. The palate is medium-bodied, slightly viscous on the entry, building to a dried apricot, biscuit middle with good acidity and balance, but a linearity that keeps its feet on the ground. Touch of spice and ginger on the finish, this Sauternes is somehow more enjoyable in retrospect, as you look back upon it, than when actually imbibing it! Drink 2013-2030” (NM) Jan 2010
