Château Climens 2016

SKU:1088/16 Bordeaux - Barsac - White - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 95-97

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Climens was tasted from the 12 different lots that will go into the Grand Vin, with some selected from the Deuxième Vin, Cyprès de Climens. As usual, I had to assemble them in my mind and relate commonalities, though at a négoçiant a week later I re-tasted four preprepared micro-blends. I found much elegance this year. It is not a powerful Climens in the making and even with the higher alcohol lots that reached 14.9%, you could not feel any warmth and the wines maintained the tension. Some lots displayed saline finishes, perhaps a little more than usual. Perhaps the most important factor was just how Barsac they all tasted. Sometimes some lots can taste more Sauternes-like in style, but not this year.
