Delish with foie gras — 6 months ago
Awesome Sauternes. Definitely on the lighter and slightly less sweet side, I think this is Barsac even though it's labeled Sauternes on the front. (the cork and back label say Barsac). Orange marmalade, ginger, honey, poached peaches and pears, and a bit of baking spice. Very rich but not too cloying as far as Sauternes goes. Medium to medium + body, medium + acid, plenty sweet as you'd expect. Wonderful soft texture. Amazing alongside the post-dinner cheese plate. — 5 years ago

Drank 4/26/18 at a tasting event.
2nd wine of Climens. Nose of pineapple and honeyed apricots, with some slight volatility that blows off after a few minutes. Flavors of pineapple and some light honey, without the depth or richness of the Climens. Decent wine, but would vastly prefer the Doisy Vedrines for around the same price.

Huge, oily, big Sauternes of the very select and rare bottling that is oft less seen than the grand dame of them all d'Yquem.
Orange marmalade, honey, sweet biscuit, vanilla, thisnis massively flavored and textures...more acidity for me would have made it a show stopper though it made its presence felt. — 10 months ago
