Château Climens 2019

BordeauxBarsacBlanc

  • Wine
  • In the Celtic language, "Climens" means "thankless or unrewarding land" and the estate is well named: the Semillon vines subsist on chalk. Made sublime by noble rot, this unique variety becomes a peerless expression of that terroir, its special charm a blend of tension and minerality. Since 1992, with great enthusiasm, Bérénice Lurton has continued to improve this singular terroir.

    This year, as always, the technical teams - who have had time to adjust to the biodynamic practices that were first initiated in 2007 - have carefully nurtured the land, dusting with sulphur and with talc, administering tisanes of fennel, nettle and horsetail and copper in the form of copper hydroxide - in almost homeopathic quantities...

     

    In 2019, the summer heat delayed the arrival of noble rot but proved ideal conditions for sour rot, a deterioration engendered by small flies that contaminate the berries at the point when they have barely become botrytized.

    The harvest was, for the third consecutive year, very small - but the purity of the fruit was incredible. The wine has, without doubt, an abundance of the Climens style: radiance, subtlety, crystalline freshness and minerality that, together, promise a magnificent 2019 vintage.
