Climens is considered in history as the lord of Barsac. The name Climens appears as early as 1547. Château Climens obtains in 1855 the title of Premier Cru. Its vineyard size is unchanged since its creation, 30 hectares and only 5 families that have succeeded at Climens. The family Lurton acquired the castle in 1970. Since then the family maintains and perfects the property acquired.

Like her predecessors, Bérénice Lurton is surrounded by a team guided by the love of the terroir and a job well done. The development of the wines of Climens then requires a real work of goldsmith, and an intimate knowledge of the property. The quality of the terroir, the rigor of the wine monitoring and the harvest induce very low yields and vary depending on the vintage. A single grape variety composes this bottle: Sémillon, planted on clay and ferruginous sands resting on a limestone substratum, on an area of ??about 30 hectares. The vineyard, of 35 years old on average, is the subject of constant and attentive care of the vinifiication process.

At the tasting, we discover a fresh and mineral wine despite its pronounced aromatic complexity. During its aging, we will discover aromas of citrus fruit and fresh fruit until candied fruits a few years later.
