Could it be the wind?* The leaves look healthy enough.

You can always give it some water to see if that helps. But in my
non-expert opinion, any sudden wilt on a clematis, particularly at this
time of the year, is almost diagnostic of clematis wilt even if the
leaves haven't (yet) wilted.

Thank you, I assume that the plants I ordered last October must have had
the disease.
