Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 90 pts, Wine House - 1980 is a wonderful vintage of Climens, which has produced an outstanding Barsac. An exotic bouquet of tropical fruit, pineapples, and melons is really top class. On the palate, the wine is rich, yet never heavy or cloyingly sweet, with crisp, rich, medium-bodied, lush, velvety, ripe fruity flavors. This is a superb effort from Climens, and one of the best sweet wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: Now-2000. Last tasted, 12/90. - Jan 1998
