98 points - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

‘it was actually under blind conditions that the Climens 2007 re-confirmed its status as the best Sauternes of the vintage. It retains an ethereal bouquet of honey, white peach, apricot and orange-blossom with ethereal purity and joie de vivre.

The palate is medium-bodied with exquisite balance and essence of mineralite. It balances on tiptoe with perfect acidity that effortlessly counterpoises those layers of rich honeyed fruit; the finish taut, vibrant and with a sense of place. This is outstanding in every way.

Perfect? I would not bet against it deserving that loaded adjective one day in the future. Drink 2015-2050.’

Tasted February 2012.
