    August 19, 2021 - Lovely now but will live forever. Nose with sweet peach, coconut, mint and honey. Changes with time in the glass, wonderful!
    Big palate with nice balance between sweet, sharp and acidity. Minutelong finish. Great wine.

    August 7, 2021 - Still great but felt more closed than the first time. Interesting development. This can go for miles and miles

    February 14, 2021 - First bottle. Medium gold colour. Fairly viscous in the glass. Pungent nose of spiced apricots, Manuka honey, barley sugar and candied pineapple. Viscous mouthfeel that combines sweet, spicey, phenolic richness and cleansing acidity on the finish. The flavour profile is similar to the nose with spiced, dried apricots, green tea, candied pineapple, cedar, barley sugar and buckwheat honey. Long finish that is sweet and crisp. Nicely balanced and starting to develop some complexity. Feels like the various components have only just started to mesh and will improve with more time. 91 points now

    January 5, 2021 - To me a great Sauternes, with intense bouquet, superbly delineated flavours, energy and vivacity. It has that very special something you hope for in a Climens. Elegant doesn’t quite fully capture it, perhaps ethereal. Although youthful with ageing potential, it is so good now. Mystified by the conservative scoring for this wine (not that I can relate to wine scoring anyway.)
