"I have had some of the fabled mature vintages of Climens (the 1947 and 1949 come to mind immediately), but the 1971 remains my favorite mature vintage of this wine. It is a classic Climens, powerful yet restrained, rich and opulent, yet also delicate. This wine has superb balance, a long, lively, crisp finish, and moderate sweetness kept light and delightful by excellent acidity. It is one of the finest Barsacs I have ever tasted. The honeyed pineapple character, so much a personality trait of this wine, is abundantly displayed. Anticipated maturity: Now-2001. Last tasted, 12/97." - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Dec 31, 1997)
