1975 Chateau Climens 1er Cru Sauternes - Barsac 73cl
A bottle of 1975 Château Climens 1er Cru from Barsac, a sub-appellation of Sauternes known for its slightly drier, more elegant style.
'High-botrytis vintage, low yields (7.2 hl/ha). TA 4.5 g/l (sulphuric), RS 98 g/l. Deep gold with the first signs of amber. More oily on the nose than the 1976 but intense bitter orange freshness too, intensely aromatic. Fabulously fresh acidity with so much richness and concentration of flavour. 19.5/20' Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.Com, Tasted 2009
