About

The name Climens appears for the first time in a document dating from 1547. Following on from the Roborel de Climens family, owners of the property until 1802, the chateau has been in the hands of only five families: the Binaud family, the Lacostes, the Gounouilhou family, the Lurtons, the most recent member of the family being Bérénice Lurton, who has now transferred the property into the hands of the Moitry family.

Chateau Climens is one of the rare Premier Crus Classés, pronounced in the 1855 classification, to have made the choice of being a mono-varietal vineyard. On the limestone terroir at Climens, the Semillon expresses its marvellous elegance and contributes a freshness that is unexpected from such ripe grapes with so little acidity. The success of the audacious transition to biodynamic production in 2010, has reinforced the vines and has enhanced the brightness, the vivacity and the verticality of our wines.

The limestone terroir of Climens, so particular in the region, can hold its own with the best of the great white-wine terroirs of France, and permits the production of not only a unique sweet wine but also exceptional dry white wines of remarkable elegance and purity. - Winery Website


Tasting Notes

Pale gold, the 2009 Climens offers up a fabulously fragrant nose of green tea, chamomile, powdered ginger, lemon marmalade and fallen leaves with suggestions of spice cake and preserved mandarin peel. The palate is super intense with vibrant, energetic fruit and layer upon layer of perfume and spice nuances, finishing very long and incredibly youthful.
