Ch?teau Climens 2016


The 2016 Climens was tasted from the 12 different lots that will go into the Grand Vin, with some selected from the Deuxi?me Vin, Cypr?s de Climens. As usual, I had to assemble them in my mind and relate commonalities, though at a n?go?iant a week later I re-tasted four preprepared micro-blends. I found much elegance this year. It is not a powerful Climens in the making and even with the higher alcohol lots that reached 14.9%, you could not feel any warmth and the wines maintained the tension. Some lots displayed saline finishes, perhaps a little more than usual. Perhaps the most important factor was just how ‘Barsac’ they all tasted. Sometimes some lots can taste more Sauternes-like in style, but not this year. Drink Date: 2021-2055. Score – 95-97. (Neal Martin,
