Event Terms and Conditions 2013

  1. Ch. Climens Seminar with Berenice Lurton

    8 February 2016  | London

    Seminar

    Seminar session with Berenice Lurton from Ch. Climens to be held at 67 Pall Mall, London. Château Climens can trace its history back to the 16th century and was bought by Lucien Lurton in 1971. It has been owned and managed by Bérénice Lurton since 1992. The ‘Climens Style’ expresses the quintessence of Barsac with its balance and freshness, but also has the power and magnificence of the great Sauternes. Climens may be defined primarily by its depth and conferred by its unique terroir.
