I need to drink this when I’m 39, not 29, so much potential... A MUST BUY AGAIN #birthyearwine

Beautiful amber richness in a wonderfully elegant and balanced wine. Shows the classic salty and savory nuances that make Climens more approachable than some sweeter styled Sauternes. A treat!

Lovely wine. Elegant and well balanced though lacking the profundity of greater vintages such as 1976 or 2005

A great vintage for Climens. Rich and full though still very young and needs time to fully develop. Nice savory and salty elements offset the sweetness that dominates so many Sauternes.

Probably the best bottle of sweet wine I have ever tasted...3rd time still my favorite. 1988.

1997 vintage. Delicious, with lots of length and will last another few decades
