Sauternes – Barsac Premier Grand Cru Classé 37.5cl 2005, Château Climens


SKU: 35436951536 Categories: ,

The 2005 Climens is drinking nicely, wafting from the glass with aromas of orange oil, dried apricot and marmalade mingled with hints of honeycomb and petrol. Full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with an enveloping core of fruit, ripe acids and a seamless, textural profile, it’s rich and dramatic, missing just a little cut to rank as profound—even if it nonetheless ranks as one of the finest sweet wines of the vintage in Bordeaux. 94/100 William Kelley,
