97 THE WINEADVOCATE: Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Climens just soars from the glass with layers of clear honey, marmalade, nectarine and minerals all beautifully carved. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh, vibrant honeyed fruit that builds and builds in the mouth in tandem with a killer line of acidity. Even though it is a convincing, great Climens, you also have the impression that it is only just beginning to show what it is capable of. Bérénice Lurton and her team excelled in this vintage and it comes strongly recommended." Drink -2060 95 THE WINESPECTATOR: "Toffee, dried lemon rind and tropical fruit on the nose. Full-bodied and very sweet, with a dense palate of candied fruit and a long, sweet finish. Very concentrated. The botrytis spice creeps up on the finish." 92 THE WINE ENTHUSIAST: "Intensely rich, very perfumed wine, full of apples and honey flavors. There is also fresh fruit, but the richness dominates, showing some dry botrytis flavors to finish." 94 STEPHEN TANZER: "Good full golden-yellow. Musky, very fresh aromas of crystallized citrus peel, minerals and toasted bread. The palate offers incredible sappy concentration and a saline aspect, not to mention a penetrating quality rare for this fruit-driven year. In fact, this begins almost light, then builds inexorably toward the back, finishing with a tactile impression of extract and an extraordinary sweetness that almost reminded me of the Suduiraut that I tasted just before it. Should go on for decades." 17,5 JANCIS ROBINSON: "Tasted blind. Deep orangey gold. Smells of crème pâtissière. So rich! Lots of excitement and sheer weight and volume. Good energy on the finish. Marzipan notes. Unctuous." Drink -2035 95 THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "I love young Sauternes . OK, I like them old too. But there is something about the primal sweet, honeyed apricot, vanilla, overripe tropical fruit and nut aromas in this wine that get me going. Add in the racy acidity and a long, fresh, invigorating, rich, honey drenched finish and it’s just the right amount of after dinner, or anytime decadence." 19 RENE GABRIEL: "Recht dunkles Gelb mit erstem Goldschimmer, brillant. Dichtes, enggliedriges Bouquet, legt zu an der Luft und zeigt immer mehr Facetten von gelber, reifer Frucht, Orangentönen und einem frischen Melissenhauch darin. Im Gaumen fein, elegant, schon fast milchig, ein burgundischer Climens mit zarter Bitterkeit und Gelatinetouch im Finale." drink -2080"
