Barsac, Premier Cru. 

100% Semillon.

The 31-hectare Barsac vineyard of Chateau Climens is planted with 100% Semillon grapes. On average, the vines are 35 years of age. At one time, there was a minor amount of Sauvignon Blanc and a few Muscadelle vines planted in the vineyard. However, after the Lurton family purchased the estate in 1972, those vines were removed and replaced with Semillon.

Jane Anson: 96/100

How it is possible to sculpt such an opulent but precise and delicious wine out of such a tiny yield of 2.7hl/h is beyond me, but somehow Climens has achieved it. Stunning depths of juicy peach, nectarine, white tea, white truffle, pinceapple, saffron, mint, concentrated but aerian with a slice of steel. Just 4,000 bottles produced instead of the normal 10,00010h, 130g/l residual sugar. A tought vintage for Climens owner Jean-Hubert Moitry, but the results are impressive.
