Château Climens 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Picked in just two tries, 90% picked in one trie, tasting through 13 separate<br/>lots, the core components of a great Climens appear to be in place. Paying<br/>particular attention to the lots that constitute a large percentage of the<br/>blend (usually around 15%) the common themes are ones of great purity,<br/>persistency and precision. The aromatics display pure honey, minerals,<br/>occasionally a faint scent of spearmint and white peach, most with spellbinding<br/>precision. On the palate, Berenice Lurton has some stupendous lots at her<br/>disposal, with ample botrytis, ethereal definition, one or two more powerful,<br/>quite spicy lots and others that are shorter and will undoubtedly lend the<br/>blend an acidic cut. It will be a joy to taste this after bottling. <br/>(Neal Martin - Wine Advocate - April 2010)

The superb palate boasts richness with honey and orange zest notes. It shows fine balance between the flavors of orange jelly and the intense botrytis-driven notes. It has a light delicate texture and acidity. Wine Enthusiast.

Very concentrated and special with real lift as well as that massive undertow! You could really enjoy this already though doubtless it will pass through tertiary and quadwhatsit stages too. Very clean revitalising finish. 18.5/20 Jancis Robinson.
