High-wired, super-focused, seductively creamy and beautifully balanced. The beam of lemon, honey, spice, pear and melon flavor shines through to a fresh, long finish. Tempting now.

For whatever reason, the 1989 is merely outstanding rather than dazzling. Although it lacks the complexity of the 1988, it is a plump, muscular, rich, intense, full-bodied, and sweeter-than-usual Climens. For a 1989, it possesses good acidity. If more complexity and grip develop, my rating may look stingy.

Château informations
Climens
Chateau Climens, is a vineyard of 30 hectares located in the Barsac appellation.  Climens is ranked 1st growth by the official classification of 1855. The vineyard's 30 hectares are in all together in one parcel, the soil is composed of red sandy clay on a limestone base. The vines are 100% Semillon (which is a rare monocepage in the region), with a density of 6600 plants / ha for an average age of 35-year-old  vines 35 years old. Climens produces only a sweet white wine. Climens yields are particularly low, with an average of 7 hl / ha, or 4 hl / ha in the difficult years, to maintain quality and exceptional concentration. The estate produces a second wine called Cyprès de Climens in memory of a curious tradition: when the vessels were leaving port on the Ciron, they were given a branch of blue cypress to insure future payment. Overall the wines produced by Climens are consistently of a very high level. In fact, they are made with great care and high quality thanks to the high demands of Berenice Lurton.Great vintages: 1971, 1983, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2001, 2005.
