Reviews for 2009 Climens Sauternes Blend

WE 96
Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, February 2013
The superb palate boasts richness, with honey and orange zest notes. It shows fine balance between the flavors of orange jelly and the intense botrytis-driven notes. It has a light, delicate texture and acidity.

Opulent, fragrant and wonderfully indulgent. Spearmint and preserved lemon and spice. Marvellous, potent stuff – really speaks of the vintage – and incredible length. 18.5/20 (RH)

Rounded and broad in feel for now with richly layered toasted almond ginger cream brioche and glazed apple notes that all glide through the viscous finish where a flash of green tea can be found. This has the buried zip... Rounded and broad in feel for now with richly layered toasted almond ginger cream brioche and glazed apple notes that all glide through the viscous finish where a flash of green tea can be found. This has the buried zip for the long haul which it will need to assimilate fully. There's lots in reserve. Best from 2015 through 2034. -JM

100% semillon. Full bodied and richly textured but pleasant nonetheless. Flavors of tangerines and ripe cantaloupe are very present. The complex bouquet is quite fragrant and powerful.
