Chateau Climens Barsac Premier Grand Cru Classe 2011 37.5cl£67.99
Ranked a First Growth Barsac in 1855, Chateau Climens was acquired by Lucien Lurton in 1970, the year in which his daughter, Berenice, was born, who now owns and manages the estate; farmed according to biodynamic principles Renowned for her extraordinary attention to detail, Berenice is now responsible for a wine that rivals d'Yquem in quality: a wine that is marked for an extraordinary tension between concentrated flavours, luscious sweetness and bracing balancing acidity With dried apricots, orange marmalade, Creme Brulee and honey fresh from the hive, this is extraordinary stuff!

Fresh green apple and peaches combine with a floral hint on the nose of this beguiling wine Tangy passionfruit comes through on the palate, alongside fresh-cut grass, and a murmur of beeswax The wine has a smooth and gently rounded texture, before giving way to subtle honey and nutty flavours on the finish
