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.

($80-$110) Full gold with orange highlights. Fruit salad and floral aromas, along with sexy oak tones of nuts, marzipan, spices, vanilla and toasted almond. Enticing, opulent and concentrated, with lovely inner-mouth aromatic quality and bright acids to frame the sweet fruit salad flavors. Finishes with a restrained sweetness and lovely lift and perfume. This very long and aromatic wine boasts a tight, chewy core of fruits and spices and very good energy on the back end. But it's also remarkably easy to taste today.
