Robert Parker calls Climens, 'one of France's monumental sweet wines and a personal favorite. It combines great nobility with laser-like flavor precision. A tour de force in winemaking.' He considers it 'the most companionable with food, the most complex and the most compelling wine to drink in the Barsac/Sauternes region.' Climens is a First Growth Barsac producer planted to 100% Semillon with old vines averaging 40+ years. The wine is aged for 18-24 months in barrels with 30-50% new oak and the wine is neither fined nor filtered to extract the deepest concentration and fullest complexity.

Wine SpectatorGorgeous, offering a range of orange, almond and brioche notes backed by lively citrus oil, green tea and ginger accents. Rich but tightly coiled nonetheless, with lots of energy lying in reserve on the finish. Needs some time. Best from 2022 through 2045. 3,083 cases made.

Wine AdvocatePale lemon in color, the 2015 Climens is just a little closed, offering up lovely lemon curd, lime juice and apple tart notes with touches of acacia honey and paraffin. Fine, fresh and elegant in the mouth, with great purity and poise, it finishes with amazing persistence.
