Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. The 2012 Château Climens is always horrendously difficult to taste in its infancy and under blind conditions it can fall short of expectations. That may well be the case here. It has a simple, slightly malic bouquet at first, almost Germanic in style, scents of yellow flowers emerging with time, coalescing and gaining more richness. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry. There appears to be more botrytis here and certainly more weight on the fresh finish that is tinged with barley sugar, betraying Barsac origins. I appreciate the power here, although the aftertaste feels a tad short. This is one of the very few Sauternes that deserve time in bottle.
