This is very elegant and complex, like most Barsacs is lighter weight than Sauternes and much more floral. Also has the tell tale honey and bee wax notes as well as lemon zest. Its terrific now and there is no rush to enjoy it. Enthusiastically recommended. — 6 days 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. — 4 years ago
100% Sauvignon. Star bright straw gold. Inviting nose of green apples and honeysuckle. Firm acidity leads the medium palate which yields green apple, citrus rind, and a touch of birch. Moderately lingering, slightly stony finish. Sauvignon done Bordeaux style with body and brightness that makes a perfect pair for seafood, roasted poultry, or Asian cuisine. Drink now through 2024. — a month ago

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.
