Picked in just two tries 90% picked in one trie tasting through 13 separate lots the core components of a great Climens appear to be in place. Paying particular attention to the lots that constitute a large percentage of the blend (usually around 15%) the common themes are ones of great purity persistency and precision. The aromatics display pure honey minerals occasionally a faint scent of spearmint and white peach most with spellbinding precision. On the palate Berenice Lurton has some stupendous lots at her disposal with ample botrytis ethereal definition one or two more powerful quite spicy lots and others that are shorter and will undoubtedly lend the blend an acidic cut. It will be a joy to taste this after bottling. -Neal Martin

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.

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

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)

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.
