Equiv. £66.67 per bottle

Tasting Note:

Pale to mid-gold in colour, aromatically very expressive on the nose with oaky hints and plenty of creamy texture; explosive on the palate, soaked in a buttery richness and so smooth across the tongue; very sweet but buoyed up by underlying freshness, lots of minerals, wonderful balance. This elegant, sumptuous wine is a must for Sauternes fans. (A memorable tasting experience, served from barrels that show the remarkable differences not between different varieties (100% Semillon at Climens) but between the earlier and later harvested grapes. The freshness of the earlier barrels is then blended magnificently with the richness of the later barrels to give an impression of the likely final blend of Climens 2007.)
