Description

This lot contains four 37.5cl half bottles of Château Climens 2002 1er Cru from Barsac, a sub-appellation of Sauternes known for its slightly drier, more elegant style.

'Two desserts might seem a little decadent for just one wine writer, but I couldn’t resist the 2002 Château Climens at an especially fair price on the short but well thought out wine list and so two desserts seemed the right thing to do. Politely styled but not shy on noble rot, this Climens from what is an underrated Barsac vintage (it followed too closely on the heels of the more famous 2001) evokes magical purity of fruit with honeyed tropical fruit and fresh citrus aromas and flavors. Surprisingly richly textured, it stood up well to the two desserts, especially the tarte. 92/100' Vinous.com, 2015
