The second wine of Château Climens, Cyprèe de Climens is 100% Semillon.

 

The history of the estate dates back to the 16th century but today it is in the ownership of the Lurton family with Bérénice Lurton currently at the helm.

 

The vineyards of Climens cover more than 30 hectares in one continuous vineyard surrounding the château and have an average age of 35 years.

 

Fermentation is in cask followed by a further 12 month period of maturation in barrel.

 

The wine has a lovely yellow/ amber colour with an aromatic nose, with vanilla hints, and notes of candied yellow fruits, apricot and honey. The palate is soft and rounded with excellent texture, richness and great length. A lovely Barsac.
