Reviews for 2006 Climens Sauternes Blend

WE 96
Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, March 2009
Beautiful aromas of orange zest are followed by gingerbread caramel and crème brûlée flavors. This is a beautiful rich smoothly dense wine with a core of botrytis spice and vivid fresh citrus acidity.

Thick and flavorful with vanilla spice and cream character as well. Builds on the palate. Best after 2012. -JS

Proprietor Berenice Lurton continues to turn out one of the utterly profound wines from the Barsac Sauternes region. The 2006 is not up there with their perfect 2001 but it is a beautiful wine and stands out as one of the top wines of 2006. Medium gold with a slightly more advanced color than I am used to seeing in a young Climens the wine displays waxy honeyed pineapple and delicate marmalade and citrus notes with a restrained use of new oak. The wine cuts a full-bodied swath across the palate with terrific acidity freshness and moderate sweetness. This is a beauty but perhaps on a much faster evolutionary track than some of their greatest vintages. -Robert Parker

Jancis Robinson - Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, March 2014
Minty, marmalade, really complex aromatic range – smoke, toasted nuts, ripe apricots, red apples. Wonderful, magical stuff. 18/20 (RH)

Fruit salad and floral aromas along with sexy oak tones of nuts marzipan spices vanilla and toasted almond. Enticing opulent and concentrated with lovely inner-mouth aromatic quality and bright acids to frame the sweet fruit salad flavors. Finishes with a restrained sweetness and lovely lift and perfume. This very long and aromatic wine boasts a tight chewy core of fruits and spices and very good energy on the back end. But it's also remarkably easy to taste today.
