Magic and Madness: Climens 1912-2020 (Aug 2022)

The 1937 Climens is a vintage that I have tasted twice within days of each other. It has a paler colour than expected with dried honey, melted candle wax and dried apricot, not dissimilar to a Tokaji in many ways. Quite well-defined. The palate is fresh with a taut line of acidity, notes of tangerine and mango, rather cohesive with a viscous orange zest finish. Excellent. Tasted November 2009 at the Château Climens vertical in Zurich.
