Ex-chateau bottle tasted blind in Sauternes. The Climens 03 has always been a capricious Barsac: brilliant out of barrel but found wanting under vertical conditions. Here amidst a blind horizontal it fell somewhere between the two! This bottle offers a sweet ripe bouquet of candied orange peel dried honey and fig that is missing a little delineation (as discerned on previous bottles.) The palate is ripe and rounded on the entry with a touch of spice that lends it a pleasant edginess. Mango and pineapple form the middle whilst the finish is composed and focused with commendable precision and citric acidity. To repeat comments I have made before this is a decent Climens but Berenice Lurton has made far superior wines in recent years. Tasted April 2013. - Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Loads of honey, maple syrup, dried apricot and spice. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, with a refined, spicy character. Pretty wine. Masses of botrytis. This is refined and long, a racy wine compared with the power and muscle of so many others. Beauty amon... Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Climens 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

"Normally I have a slight preference for the elegance and refinement of the Faiveley Latricières compared to the power and animale character of the Mazis but not in 2003 as the latter is actually a bit more elegant and refined. The Latricières is rich, full and expressive with superb depth of extract. The sheer complexity here is impressive."*-- burghound.com* *-- DIRECT FROM THE CELLARS OF FAIVELEY**-- Quantities are limited, we urge you to act quickly.*
