Climens

Background

Chateau Climens in Barsac is unquestionably one of the greatest sweet wines in the world. The property was purchased by the Lurton family in 1971 and is currently run by the phenomenally talented Berenice Lurton who is currently making wines of incredible balance and finesse that, according to many critics, even surpass Chateau D’Yquem. Although modern winemaking techniques have a factor to play, Climens has been extremely highly regarded for most of the 20th Century – the great Alexis Lichine writes in his "Wines of France" that the 1929 Climens surpasses Yquem. Their trump card is perhaps the consistency that they maintain even in the most challenging vintages – these also offer exceptional value for money...
