International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 115

($150-$200) Medium yellow. Reticent, liqueur-like aromas of yellow plum, vineyard peach, spices, white flowers and menthol. Impeccably balanced and impressively structured, with its new oak component to the fore. But this extremely bright, intense, focused wine possesses a strong core of spicy, botrytized fruit. Finishes with terrific fruit and an almost tannic firmness. Like so many of these 2001s, give this long aeration if you plan to taste a bottle any time soon.

So massive and unctuous yet with great freshness. Wonderful stuff with a slightly burnt edge. Great complexity. Long. Brava!

A spectacular nose of dried pineapple, spicy vanilla, pinto beans, and wax. Well balanced with sufficient acidity despite the wine's extreme sweetness. Finish is quite long but the flavors (pineapple and some oak) are rather simple at present. The only question in regard to this wine is its price ? mature vintages of Climens can be had for 40% less. 100% S?millon aged in 60% new oak barrels.
