Chateau Climens Bottle 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"...tautness, racy acidity and spice. Focusing upon two batches representing about 14% of the harvest, there was patently exquisite balance and a sense of concentrated but efficient power, counterbalanced by immense purity and effervescence. Their problem will be knowing exactly which lots to deselect!...94-96" WA 05/11

Berenice Lurton and her team managed to pick the crop just hours before rains fell on October 23. Tasting through every one of their lots in 2010, there was a theme of tautness, racy acidity and spice. Focusing upon two batches representing about 14%... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

100% semillon. Aged in 35% new oak.Vibrant yellow/straw hue. This was hands down the most backwards closed wine of the tasting. Completely unyielding at first requiring sometime in the glass to finally shed its inner beauty. True to Climens style this is promising to be a wine for the annals. It is ripe and tropical yet beautifully spiced. So much tension on the palate with bucket-loads of vibrant acids. The fruit is compact yet ethereal with an abundance of floral notes and ripe yellow s

Attractive nose with hazelnuts vanilla and apricot. Lots of dried orange peel and honey in this excellent sweet wine. Dense and very sweet on the palate with bright acidity and wonderful purity of fruit. Soft well-balanced and very elegant long finish. Medium sweetness. Intense botrytis spice on finish. Better in 2016. James Suckling.
