K&L Notes

From Neal Martin, when writing for Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Bordeaux Index’s Chateau Climens dinner. There is a sense of natural refinement to the ’88 Climens with a fragrant bouquet of beeswax, honeysuckle and a hint of tinned pineapple. So much freshness and vitality, although it will be fascinating to see how it evolves further. The palate is wonderfully poised, pure and precise; more citrus than previous bottles with a good level of botrytis, building nicely towards the focused mellifluous, peachy finish that suggests this Climens has a long future ahead. Tasted November 2009." (Wine Journal, 3/2010)

    To me one of the greatest Climens I have ever tasted. Perfect balance and rich lingering finish. As Neil Martin so aptly says: "The palate is wonderfully poised, pure and precise; more citrus than previous bottles with a good level of botrytis, building nicely towards the focused mellifluous, peachy finish that suggests this Climens has a long future ahead." The acid balance of 1988 Sauternes is the key part of the wines.
    Drink from 2017 to 2037
