Beauséjour-Duffau St-Emilion Slightly Torn Label 2003
Grace and elegance is undoubtedly the trademark of Ch. Climens whose winescombine the rich, luscious character of great Sauternes with an inner core ofcitrussy acidity. The 2003 harvest had possibly more botrytis and richness thanthis estate has seen before. The result is the sweetest and most concentratedClimens ever. On tasting the lots in her cellars, before assemblage, ownerBérénice Lurton said, "It becomes more and more obviousthat the wine is fantastic."

No tasting note was given. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Climens 750ml
Loads of honey, maple syrup, dried apricot and spice. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, with a refined, spicy character. Pretty wine. Masses of botrytis. This is refined and long, a racy wine compared with the power and muscle of so many others. Beauty amon... Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Climens 750ml
Loads of honey maple syrup dried apricot and spice. Full-bodied medium-sweet with a refined spicy character. Pretty wine. Masses of botrytis. This is refined and long a racy wine compared with the power and muscle of so many others. Beauty among the beasts. Best after 2012. 2 300 cases made. Wine Spectator.
Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. The Climens 03 has always been a capricious Barsac: brilliant out of barrel but found wanting under vertical conditions. Here amidst a blind horizontal it fell somewhere between the two! This bottle offers a sweet ripe bouquet of candied orange peel dried honey and fig that is missing a little delineation (as discerned on previous bottles.) The palate is ripe and rounded on the entry with a touch of spice that lends it a pleasant edginess. Mango and pineapple form the middle whilst the finish is composed and focused with commendable precision and citric acidity. To repeat comments I have made before this is a decent Climens but Berenice Lurton has made far superior wines in recent years. Tasted April 2013. - Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
