100% semillon. Aged in a mix of one-third new 1-year and 2-year old barrels. Climens does not present classic barrel samples as the final assemblage is yet to be determined. But we did taste a number of parcels six samples representing six different tries or harvest days directly from barrel. Each portion highlighted a different profile ranging from clean bright and fresh to richer and more textured. 1 - Sept. 8: Exotic and ripe tropical notes with an emphasis on elegance and freshness. Pure and vibrant. 2 - Sept. 12: Showing more depth concentration and richness verging on honey with more noticeable spice. 3 - Sept. 15: Hitting more marmalade and citrus rind flavors with moderate weight spice and fresh acidity. 4 - Sept. 18: Represents 40% of the harvest. A deeper gold color than earlier samples showing lots of spice and honey with vibrant citrus and mineral characters and a slightly fat and nutty element. Superb complexity. 5 -Sept. 21: Brilliant yellow gold color. Marzipan and orange rind. Mouthwatering really rich and buttery with coconut crhme and lemon curd flavors. 6 - Sept. 28: Returning to a leaner profile and more citrus elements plus clementine floral and vanilla bean flavors all while showing a rich nutty character that expresses bright citrus and mineral notes. Symmetry on all levels with not one sample evidently out of proportion or balance. One can only imagine the potential of the final blend but based on these samples this promises to be a truly outstanding wine that will last for decades to come. Geoffrey Binder.

" A strikingly cool, restrained and very floral nose also offers up superbly elegant red currant and wet stone nuances where the latter element completely suffuses the medium weight flavors that possess a lovely sense of underlying tension on the focused, precise and driving finish. There is plenty of mouth coating dry extract but even so, this is presently austere to the point of being Cistercian and as such note well that plenty of patience will be required as this is very firmly structured...92-94" BH 01/13
