    The 1996 Climens is attractive on the nose with vibrant scents of barley sugar, saffron, mandarin and melted wax. Fine delineation, it meliorates in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied, poised and a little more citrus than expected, tangerine and honey mixed with ginger towards the finish that fans out with confidence. Excellent.

    Château Climens

    Château Climens

    This Chateau dates back to the 16th century and is generally regarded as the finest estate in Barsac and one of the great sweet wines produced anywhere in the world. Purchased by Lucien Lurton in 1971, it is now run by Bérénice Lurton. The vineyards are planted exclusively with Semillon on a gravel and sand over limestone and clay soils. Although there is only on grape variety, Bérénice doesn’t hurry the assemblage; when we taste each April, we don’t taste a final blend, rather we taste from individual barrels which are fermented and aged plot by plot and trie by trie.
