Climens, Château
Bordeaux, France
Fresh amber orange hue, translucent, no loss of color at the rims. Honeyed nose with lanolin, spiced orange peel, dense apricot, peach, nectarine fruit, fairly foursquare, moderate length in the nostrils. Medium-bodied, a bit more complex here with orange paste, honey, molasses accompanied by glazed nuts, cinnamon stick, ginger root, and a botrytis like florality. Tropical array of nectarine, pineapple, papaya fruit. Gets a little hot at the finish but not to the point of distraction. 375 ml bottle.
