Chateau Climens is Barsac's premiere wine, as well as being one of Sauternes greatest sweet wines. Climens, which is sited on the highest elevation in Barsac in the south of the Barsac appellation (just 20 metres above sea level!) is renowned for its delicacy and finesse and complexity of flavour. Climens, which translates to 'infertile land' in Celtic, dates back 500 years, and its conspicuous soil is a distinct red hue, dotted with pebbles.

”A prodigious offering, the 2001 Climens’ light medium bold color with a greenish hue is followed by ethereal aromas of tropical fruits (primarily pineapple), honeysuckle, and flowers. It is a medium-bodied wine of monumental richness, extraordinary precision/delineation, great purity, and moderate sweetness. The finish seemingly lasts forever. This monumental effort is the stuff of legends.” Robert Parker
