2003 Climens, Barsac

SKU #1042294 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 No tasting note given.  (4/2006)

96 points Wine Spectator

 Loads of honey, maple syrup, dried apricot and spice. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, with a refined, spicy character. Pretty wine. Masses of botrytis. This is refined and long, a racy wine compared with the power and muscle of so many others. Beauty among the beasts. Best after 2012.  (3/2006)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Medium yellow. Reticent, spicy nose opens slowly to reveal apricot, orange and caramel. Fat, silky and sweet, with the sheer concentration to support its substantial alcohol. Quite unctuous for Climens, with an almost confectionery quality to the fruit. Comes across as less firm than usual for a young Climens, but then today the wine's structure is buried beneath its opulence and baby fat.  (8/2006)

Jancis Robinson

 Relatively pale. Lots of ripe pear aromas and great glycerine and roundness. Very, very big and sweet. Some delicacy at the finish. Still slightly astringent on the finish. (18.5/20 Score)  (11/2005)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
