Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

91 VM

The 1970 Climens is a vintage that I have not drunk for a number of years, and I was rather scathing in my previous review. Well, I stand corrected. This has an effervescent bouquet with dried honey, pressed yellow flowers, almond and peach skin. The palate is not powerful, but it is beautifully defined, still fresh and vibrant with a viscous, sensual finish that lingers in the mouth. Not a show-stopper, but delicious in every way. Tasted at the "Judgement of Clapham Junction" dinner in London. March 2022. -- Neal Martin, Vinous Media

Deep amber gold. Tangy and lightly caramelised. Intense and extremely concentrated bitter orange flavours but a little lacking in finesse and a little roasted. Power and concentration over elegance but still stunningly fresh. TA 4.8 g/l (sulphuric), RS 80 g/l. - Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson
