Chateau Climens 2005

Chateau Climens – 1st Growth Barsac

Chateau Climens LabelBill Blatch: Surely to be one of the great Climens of recent years, this is the second (after 03) of the richer styles of this usually so reserved wine. It has been very difficult to taste over the past 2 years, having gone into its shell, and only now is it just beginning to poke its nose through all the concentration to deliver all those exquisite flavours and balance that we expect of Climens. Definitely a wine to keep for a few years before opening, and it will be one that your grandchildren will enjoy too!
