Chateau Climens Barsac 2012
Chateau Climens expresses itself mainly through freshness, in a complex, aromatic expression, in the precise balance between the sweet, acid and bitter elements and finally in the unique texture on the palate. It is a wine of great freshness and texture in the mouth that no other chateau in the area can claim to boast of.
This pulls together lush pineapple, ginger, creamed apricot and peach notes, along with singed almond and bitter orange hints. Stays broad and rich overall, but there's good cut underneath and some power that will need a bit of time to mellow. An excellent effort for the vintage. All Sémillon. Best from 2017 through 2027.
