Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

19 JR / 93 WA / 92 WS

Slightly darker than the Suduiraut but not as dark as the Lamothe-Guignard. Intense, perfectly baked pears (with a little nutmeg) and apricots and quince. Pear marmalade with the merest hint of orange. Aromatic heaven! Unctuous, fresh, fine and so much fruit on the finish. An absolute baby but already giving great pleasure. Absolutely delicious and pretty powerful but you don’t feel the 14.5 alcohol. Amazingly long. - Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com

The 2004 Climens is beginning to open up nicely – no surprise given that this Barsac always needs a decade in bottle. The nose has a delicacy that is uncommon for a youthful Climens, unfurling with subtle scents of caramelized butter, dried honey, mint and lemon thyme, but immediately identifiable as Climens. The palate is viscous on the entry, with Climens’ trademark spiciness lurking under the surface. This is very harmonious and focused – probably just beginning to enter its drinking plateau. I suspect that it will never reach the heights of the 2001 or 2009, but is a very commendable “second tier” Climens. Drink now-2035. Tasted February 2014. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

Shows apricot tart, with hints of candied lemons on the nose. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with lovely concentration and a lemony, spicy, almost flinty aftertaste. Impressive for the vintage. Very lively and zingy on the finish. Best after 2009. - James Suckling, Wine Spectator
