    THE STORY: Very early on, the prestigious growth Chateau Climens became known as "Lord of Barsac." Its history is characterized indeed by great by great continuity, which has enabled its owners to get the best out of this exceptional terroir. Only five families have owned the estate from its origins and its surface area in a continuous single vineyard of 74 acres has practically remained unchanged since the 16th century. Guirault Roborel, the king's Attorney General in Barsac inherited it from his father in 1547 and it remained in the hands of his family - who added the name 'Climens' to its own - until the beginning of the 19th century. In 1971, the finesse of Climens wines convinced Lucien Lurton, the owner of several famous classified growths in the Medoc, to purchase the estate. Ever sicne 1992, his daughter Berenice Lurton has taken great care in perpetuating the magic.
