This is only the second vintage of this dry white wine made from the Chateau Climens's vineyard in Sauternes, in collaboration with Pascal Jolivet from Sancerre. It is 100% Sémillon, fermented and aged in stainless steel. The nose has a lovely, soft-spoken restraint, offering notes of lemon peel, fresh hay, Bosc pears and paraffin wax with touches of coriander seed, honeysuckle and toasted almonds. The medium-bodied palate has beautifully understated savory and mineral nuances accenting the citrus and spiced pears flavors with a lively line of freshness and a satiny texture, finishing long and perfumed. As with Chateau Climens, this wine is certified both organic and biodynamic. Drink 2020 - 2025.

This is the first release of a dry white wine from this Barsac chateau. Beautifully fresh, the biodynamic wine also has a ripe, honeyed character that reminds that the vineyard normally produces dessert wines. The wine is a classic in the making, rich while deliciously balanced
