Better in 2016. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dense and lush now, offering tangerine, apricot, honey-roasted almond and dacquoise notes, with a long, powerful, honeyed finish that lets toasted coconut and mango cruise through. The lovely dried pineapple and honeysuckle accents flitter through the background. Shows stunning length and depth. This will become dreamy with age. Best from 2018 through 2035. Inner quote mark (3/2013)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the 2010 Climens offers a lifted, floral nose of orange blossoms and jasmine over a core of lime cordial, grapefruit oil and dried apricots plus hints of lemon preserves and ginger nut. Very sweet, hedonic and fantastically seductive in the mouth, the concentration is beautifully offset by lovely freshness, finishing with fantastic length. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark **Cellar Selection** Full and very rich, this is an opulent style of wine. It has a ripe, tropical fruit feel to it, offering power as well as fresh acidity. Pineapples and lychees give fruitiness, perfume and spice. The aftertaste, with its liquorous character, is gloriously warm and concentated. Drink from 2018. Inner quote mark (2/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very firm on the nose. Round and unctuous. Lots of clean, very sweet fruit here. The acid and alcohol are well managed. The proportions of this wine are excellent. 18.5/20 points. Drink 2020 - 2045 Inner quote mark (12/2012)
