Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

92 VM / 18 JR

Opened at the property, the 1969 Climens is the dark horse of the era (perhaps alongside the underrated 1970). Deep amber in colour. It has more vigour than expected with Satsuma and apricot, a touch of brown sugar. The palate is citrus fresh with dried peaches and apricot, quite tangy on the finish, this is a Climens that you could contentedly drink. -- Neal Martin, Vinous Media

Pale burnt caramel colour, darker than the 1967, and a lightly burnt caramel note of a young madeira. Even a little nutty. Like the 1970, amazing freshness on the palate, so zesty and full of life, maybe a little more brash than the Lurton vintages but terrific concentraton and length, probably thanks to very high acidity which makes the finish mouthwatering but perhaps just a little harsh. TA  (5.7 g/l sulphuric), RS 98 g/l.  - Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson
