97 WA / 96 VM

Tasted at Chateau Climens. This has a slightly deeper hue than the 1990. The nose is even more defined than the 1990 with quince, barley sugar, dried apricot and a touch of Clementine. The palate is medium-bodied, a great sense of tension and vibrancy, taut, focused with a compelling citrus/white peach, viscous finish that leaves the tongue revivified and ready for another drop. This is unequivocally a superlative Climens that on this occasions just pips the stunning 1990. Classic - immortal! Drink now-2040+ Tasted April 2009. -- Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

Green-tinged straw color. Initially less expressive nose opened to show floral, herbal and vanillin notes as well as a pungent minerally quality. Very sweet but very suave, with fresh but perfectly integrated acidity serving to frame and intensify the superb, mineral-and-citric fruit. Cant match the ÷90 for pure size and power but the harmoniousness of this wine is truly striking. Very, very long and subtle on the aftertaste. A great Climens. I underrated this wine in its early days, as it was overshadowed by the more powerful, more phenolic ÷90. Ò Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media

Climens often holds the same high regard as Yquem. This graceful sweet wine is dominated by citrus fruit (grapefruit, lemon, citron), fresh fruit and white flowers. Sweet spices and other deeper, confected fruit flavors will develop as time passes, and the 1989 is in its prime! It is difficult to find mature half bottles of sauternes, and Grand Vin Wine Merchants is very pleased to have these in stock and ready for your very special holiday dinner. -- Ron van Vlaardingen, GVWM Staff
