About Chateau Climens
From the highest point in Barsac, Chateau Climens looks out upon the entire appellation. It's sloping vineyards, planted exclusively to Semillon, provide excellent drainage for the vines, and a favorable microclimate, alternating between morning mist and daytime sun, allows for the early development of noble rot.

Reticent, cooler nose suggests menthol and vanilla. Then quite sweet, dense and silky, even thick for 2004. Currently dominated by brown spices, especially clove, but with a broad and seamless texture. This has struck me as unusually rich and sweet for Climens from the beginning. A real spice bomb today, and nicely long on the aftertaste.
