Tasted at Chateau Climens. A lucid golden hue. The nose is muted and a little petrolly at first, perhaps like the 2001 still in a dumb phase. There is a some alcohol making its presence felt. The palate is tight as a fist, sharp acidity, rather disjointed with dried honey, barley sugar and mandarin towards the finish. Rather conservative overall – hopefully this will awake with time. Drink 2011-2020? Tasted April 2009. (NM-Wine Journal)
Rich, bitter orange and apricot nose. Pretty viscous considering the lower RS but lovely tangy acidity. Long, full of spiced barley sugar flavours, but with a slightly abrupt finish, perhaps a slight phenolic grip combined with the high acidity. Bags of character. (JH) 18/20 points.
Pale color. Cool, perfumed aromas of lemon ice, licorice, and spicy, vanillin oak. Tightly wound, even lean, yet one senses the density of material beneath the wine new oak component. Very firmly built and stylish but a bit youthfully edgy today. Finishes with late notes of vanilla and honey.
