Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2004 Climens is beginning to open up nicely âÇô no surprise given that this Barsac always needs a decade in bottle. The nose has a delicacy that is uncommon for a youthful Climens, unfurling with subtle scents of caramelized butter, dried honey, mint and lemon thyme, but immediately identifiable as Climens. The palate is viscous on the entry, with ClimensâÇÖ trademark spiciness lurking under the surface. This is very harmonious and focused âÇô probably just beginning to enter its drinking plateau. I suspect that it will never reach the heights of the 2001 or 2009, but is a very commendable âÇúsecond tierâǝ Climens. Drink now-2035. Tasted February 2014.
