Cypres de Climens Sauternes 2016
Pale to medium lemon-gold colored, the 2016 Cypres de Climens is a little subdued at this youthful stage, offering glimpses at candied orange peel, key lime pie, crème brûlée and musk perfume scents plus a touch of fungi. The palate has a wonderful line of freshness cutting through the densely packed flavors, finishing long and earthy.
Alluring, featuring a singed coconut hint amid notes of mango, peach and apricot. Shows glazed fruit on the finish, with a flash of almond cream. A more opulent style of Barsac. Drink now through 2028.
