  • From half bottle. Apricot, orange marmalade, a little slightly candied orange peel, vanilla. Juicy acidity, the wine is sweet with flavours of apricot, vanilla, a little cream, the marmalade note less present here. S'okay.

  • Pretty much where it was a couple years ago: delicious and on a superb trajectory. Complex with ever-emerging depth but still plenty bright. Lovely.

  • Popped the cork an hour before serving and that was about right. A supremely balanced wine with a lasting finish. I’ve been following this wine since 2012 but sadly this was my last, at least for now. This is in a highly enjoyable phase which is in or near its prime and will drink well for a couple of decades plus.

  • A more decadent and fruit-driven style of Climens with delicious flavors of orange marmalade and honeycomb. There is adequate acidity to balance the sweetness and the finish is quite layered and elegant if a bit lacking in mineral thrust. Young of course but drinking very nicely already although it did get a touch cloying late.

  • Deep gold color. Drank a glass from 375ml. Baked apple, tart orange marmalade, quite sweet, strong honeycomb, Grand Marnier, full bodied, comes off overly spicy/sharp and argular on the back end. This feels more advanced than I would expect both in color and palate. The color appears to be a trend in other notes. I've got more, so will see how the rest fares. Granted it is a half bottle, but based on this, I don't see this as a long term ager. I hope to be wrong.
