Winemaker Notes

Chateau Climens expresses itself mainly through freshness, in a complex, aromatic expression, in the precise balance between the sweet, acid and bitter elements and finally in the unique texture on the palate. It is a wine of great freshness and texture in the mouth that no other chateau in the area can claim to boast of.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
This pulls together lush pineapple, ginger, creamed apricot and peach notes, along with singed almond and bitter orange hints. Stays broad and rich overall, but there's good cut underneath and some power that will need a bit of time to mellow. An excellent effort for the vintage. All Sémillon. Best from 2017 through 2027.

Very early on, the prestigious growth Chateau Climens became known as "Lord of Barsac." Its history is characterized indeed by great by great continuity, which has enabled its owners to get the best out of this exceptional terroir. Only five families have owned the estate from its origins and its surface area in a continuous single vineyard of 74 acres has practically remained unchanged since the 16th century. Guirault Roborel, the king's Attorney General in Barsac inherited it from his father in 1547 and it remained in the hands of his family - who added the name 'Climens' to its own - until the beginning of the 19th century. In 1971, the finesse of Climens wines convinced Lucien Lurton, the owner of several famous classified growths in the Medoc, to purchase the estate. Ever sicne 1992, his daughter Berenice Lurton has taken great care in perpetuating the magic.

Characterized by dried tropical fruit, candied apricot, citrus and honey, the sweet wines of Barsac are always balanced by a bright beam of acidity. While technically also part of the Sauternes region, Barsac’s sandy and limestone soils produce a lighter version in comparison. Its main grapes are the same: Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle.

Apart from the classics, we find many regional gems of different styles.

Late harvest wines are probably the easiest to understand. Grapes are picked so late that the sugars build up and residual sugar remains after the fermentation process. Ice wine, a style founded in Germany and there referred to as eiswein, is an extreme late harvest wine, produced from grapes frozen on the vine, and pressed while still frozen, resulting in a higher concentration of sugar. It is becoming a specialty of Canada as well, where it takes on the English name of ice wine.

Vin Santo, literally “holy wine,” is a Tuscan sweet wine made from drying the local white grapes Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia in the winery and not pressing until somewhere between November and March.

Rutherglen is an historic wine region in northeast Victoria, Australia, famous for its fortified Topaque and Muscat with complex tawny characteristics.
