Every weekend, we showcase and open an iconic bottle of wine, carefully selected by our sommelier team.
Each iconic wine has been chosen for its prestige and critical acclaim and then offered to you to drink by the glass at cost price.
Barsac, Château Climens, 1er Cru Classé, Bordeaux, France, 1967
£40 per 125ml glass. Current wine list price - £299.00.
I have selected one of Champagne’s finest top Cuvées. Tonight, you will have the great opportunity to taste one of the finest dessert wines! Barsac is one of the five villages to be able to carry the appellation Sauternes, but also has its own. Château Climens was classified as a First Growth in 1855 and is made in the same way as a Sauternes with Semillon grapes.
The wine develops a lovely nose of mandarin, orange marmalade, apple compote with a hint of saffron as well as some fresh hazelnut, honey and caramel.
The palate is rich, but has a great balance, and the very syrupy texture of its youth has decreased to bring more freshness. This is a fantastic wine to enjoy with our foie gras dish or with a caramel dessert.
Please reserve your glass with reception before 7pm on 19th & Saturday 20th December 2014.
