2013 Climens, Barsac

SKU #1271052 97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark *Highly Recommended* There's loads here, with apricot, nectarine and clementine flavors stitched with a racy orange zest note to give energy, along with tropical papaya and mango flavors that add a sublimely creamy edge. The finish sails on and on, coating the palate with a porcelain feel, while an echo of bitter almond hangs effortlessly, like a lace curtain hanging on an endless breeze. Stunning. Best from 2018 through 2043. (JM) Inner quote mark (1/2016)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Climens has a very fragrant bouquet with bunches of white flowers, buttercup, citrus fruits, honey and just a faint hint of oyster shell, all very well defined. There is a cold stone influence here that tempers its exuberance. The palate is very well balanced, spicy in the mouth, beautifully balanced with ginger and nutmeg infusing the honeyed fruit. This is a feisty Barsac, animated and energetic, a little "untamed" in its youth and very long. It is a great Climens that is going to age for many years. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2016)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A greater diversity of lots this year than usual, ranging from delicate to unctuous, but the final blend should be terrific. An elegant, layered, harmonious wine with freshness. (JCL) Inner quote mark (1/2016)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Honey, marmalade, vanilla, peach, pear, aniseed, white chocolate - absolutely loaded with fruit and complexity. Vivid acidity on the finish. An absolute delight. 17.5/20 points (RH) Inner quote mark (10/2015)
