- From 1er Cru Barsac
- After Yquem, Château Climens is regarded as the region's second best wine.
- Chateau Climens strives for elegance, purity and freshness
A blast of pineapple, apricot and spicy tropical fruits with all the honey you could handle. Purity and refinement was racy acidity and a long, juicy, sweet finish. Drink this today or age it for decades.
Tasting through individual lots, I was struck by their purity and tautness, developing engaging floral aromas with aeration, with occasional notes of yellow plum and ginger. On the palate, once again there is a common theme of purity and crisp acidity, although they alternated between a lighter and a more mellifluous style.
