Cypres de Climens Barsac 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)
