Full red with ruby tones. Incredible high-pitched nose combines raspberry, pepper, rose petal, red licorice, crushed stone, flowers, menthol and eucalyptus. The palate offers extraordinary sweetness but the wine’s minerally lift and intense sappiness gives it a weightless impression. Shows the noble side of Corton grand cru, not to mention uncanny intensity; Faiveley made 42 hectoliters per hectare in 2009, but the wine tastes like half that. Finishes with incredible length and verve; offhand, I can’t think of a longer 2009. Should be a cellar treasure.

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

Enticing aromas of black cherry and black currant introduce this silky red. As the fruit unfolds, smoke, spice and mineral elements emerge, persisting through the long aftertaste. This is harmonious and suave, with the class and complexity worthy of its status as a grand cru. So fleshy, the tannins are buried now. Best from 2014 through 2030.

Intensives Rubin mit violetten Reflexen. Saubere und frische Beerenfrucht (Himbeeren, Erdbeeren) mit einer zurückhaltenden Eichenholznote. Am Gaumen stilvoll und elegant. Zeigt sich noch eine Spur kantig, wird sich zu einem samtigen und ausgeglichenen Wein entwickeln.

Moderate floral notes add breadth to the very fresh and earthy red currant and plum aromas that lead to precise, vibrant and attractively transparent medium-bodied flavors that are complex, serious and persistent. This is a classic Nuits with fine balance.
