Chateau Climens dates back to the 16th century and is generally regarded as the finest estate in Barsac and one of the greatest sweet wines producers 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 .
This 1996 has developed well over the last few decades, incredible aromas of honeyed apricot, candied orange peel, butterscotch, alongside some floral notes. The palate matches these aromas with a mouth-coating, smooth finish.
