97 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Moving to the Grand Vin, the 2011 Château Climens reveals a still youthful gold color to go with impressive marzipan, brioche, honeycomb, and sauteed peach and apricot-like fruits. With beautiful balance on the palate, it's full-bodied and has a vibrant spine of acidity followed by a clean, lengthy finish. This beautiful, complex Sauternes is going to evolve for 20-30 years or more in cold cellars." - Jeb Dunnuck (12/14/2020)

97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Climens just soars from the glass with layers of clear honey, marmalade, nectarine and minerals all beautifully carved. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh, vibrant honeyed fruit that builds and builds in the mouth in tandem with a killer line of acidity. Even though it is a convincing, great Climens, you also have the impression that it is only just beginning to show what it is capable of. Bérénice Lurton and her team excelled in this vintage and it comes strongly recommended." - 219, The Wine Advocate (28th Jun 2015)

It is rare to find a very mature Classed Sauternes for such a price. This Chateau has been quietly producing classic stickies alongside its more famous neighbors. Oak aged, and very lightly filtered, this would be a temendous birthday bottle. more info

98 Points - James Suckling:
"This is really mind-blowing with super concentration of botrytis showing dried mushrooms, dried apricots, and lemon. Lemon curd and sorbet. Full-bodied, medium sweet, dense and layered. Goes on for minutes. A triumph. Drink or hold." - (February 11, 2016)

100 Points & #1 Top 100 Wines of 2004 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Like lemon curd on the nose, turning to honey and caramel. Full-bodied and very sweet, with fantastic concentration of ripe and botrytized fruit, yet balanced and refined. Electric acidity. Lasts for minutes on the palate. This is absolutely mind-blowing. This is the greatest young Sauternes I have ever tasted. Best after 2010. 12,500 cases made." – JS (Sep 15, 2004)

100 Points - James Suckling:

"This is a crazy wine! It’s sweet, but not sugary. Mushrooms, furniture wax, spices then dried oranges, lemons, pineapples, and just a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied, with great density and power, yet balanced and refined. So amazing, but give this five to six years still. Pull the cork in 2016. 145 grams RS." - (April 9, 2012)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. The Domaine de l’Alliance 2011 is missing some presence on the nose compared to its peers: light undergrowth scents permeating the honeyed fruit, yet it never quite gets out of second gear. The palate is medium-bodied with orange peel and mandarin on the entry. There is a good level of botrytis here although it tapers slightly during the second half and does not quite deliver the density of others. Yes, it is a conservative Domaine de l’Alliance and yet it is redeemed by its purity and restrained elegance." - Neal Martin (Feb 2015)

97 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Powered by dry botrytis, this is a wine with immense potential. It has weight, complexity and richness, all under the cloak of botrytis. To leaven the power, there is acidity, but this is certainly for aging." - R.V. (6/1/2010)

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Wonderful, evocative orange marmalade and ginger flavors play around this rich wine. Its botrytis dryness doesn’t detract from the intense sweetness, ripe apricots, spice and deliciously refreshing acidity. The richness is in the texture, but the ripeness is in the open, generous fruit." R.V.  (3/1/2009)
