Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the 2010 Climens offers a lifted, floral nose of orange blossoms and jasmine over a core of lime cordial, grapefruit oil and dried apricots plus hints of lemon preserves and ginger nut. Very sweet, hedonic and fantastically seductive in the mouth, the concentration is beautifully offset by lovely freshness, finishing with fantastic length.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050
Tasted blind. Ripe and honeyed with something like almond paste (reminded me of that white sweet-smelling glue called grip fix that I used at school). Fat and spicy and generous. Lots of richness and breadth and length. So spicy and broad. Very sweet. (JH)
