Winemaker's Notes:

"I have had some of the fabled mature vintages of Climens, but the 1971 remains my favorite mature vintage of this wine. It is a classic Climens, powerful yet restrained, rich and opulent, yet also delicate. This wine has superb balance, a long, lively, crisp finish, and moderate sweetness kept light and delightful by excellent acidity. The honeyed pineapple character, so much a personality trait of this wine, is abundantly displayed...94." RP 1998.
