Château Climens 2008 – Sauternes, Premier Cru Classé à Barsac

The nose is aromatic, elegant, fine, racy and offers a beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of vine peach, verbena and small notes of candied citrus (lemon, grapefruit) combined with small / fine touches of dry apricot, lychee as well as a discreet sappy hint, almond and very discreet hints of spices. The mouth is fresh, fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful acidulous frame, elegance, finesse, tension, a beautiful texture as well as a beautiful racy minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crystallized lemon, citron, verbena and small notes of vine peach associated with small / fine touches of kumquat, pineapple in syrup, mango as well as discreet hints of lime tree, almond, honey and an imperceptible hint of vanilla. There is a very discreet almost tannic hint on the finish. Beautiful gourmandise and persistence. A beautiful wine.
