Château Climens is a Premier Cru Classé Sauternes wine producer from the Barsac appellation. The estate is located in the district of Graves, an eighth of a mile away from Barsac’s other most historically rated vineyard, Château Coutet.
It is a wine characteristically known as better when young. The vintages 1929, 1947 and 1949 were described by Alexis Lichine to surpass Château d’Yquem as “lighter, with less vinosity and body, yet miraculously subtle”.
Château Climens also produces a second wine named Cypres de Climens.
