Most 1971 Bordeaux wines are in decline.  The remaining sound wines from the Left Bank are rustic and slowly in decline.  On the bright side, there are some delicious Pomerol wines that are well worth buying.

Climens is a historic Sauternes. In this vintage, it’s a much better wine than Chateau d’Yquem. It could be the best Bordeaux wine they have ever made!
