I have had some of the fabled mature vintages of Climens (the 1947 and 1949 come to mind immediately), but the 1971 remains my favorite mature vintage of this wine. It is a classic Climens, powerful yet restrained, rich and opulent, yet also delicate. This wine has superb balance, a long, lively, crisp finish, and moderate sweetness kept light and delightful by excellent acidity. It is one of the finest Barsacs I have ever tasted. The honeyed pineapple character, so much a personality trait of this wine, is abundantly displayed. (RP)
Wild and racy sweet wine with honey, vanilla, apple and pear pie, and toffee on the nose and palate. It’s full and very sweet with a long, long finish. Gorgeous.
Pale amber. Wonderfully evolved, light marmalade nose with the sweetness fading to such an extent that I think this wine could be served with relatively savoury food as well (we enjoyed it with an apple and blackberry crumble). It has great complexity, a note of dried apricots and brisk refreshment value. Light toastiness. Super clean. 18/20 points. Drink 1990 to 2015.
