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.

The terroir is extremely chalky and filled with limestone, sand, clay, and small rock-strewn soils on the Barsac plateau. This is a perfect fit for the Semillon grape.

Jane Anson: 94/100
Chamomile, white tea, sage and just lashings of juicy citrus. This is unoaked, aged in wine globes, 27hl/ha yield. Youngest wines at Climens are 27 years old, which helps carry this dry white above your average Bordeaux Blanc.
