Château Climens

Bordeaux | France

Château Climens is one of the few Grand Cru Bordeaux estates to be certified biodynamic. Chemical sprays have been replaced by natural products, including infusions from dynamised plants which grow alongside the vines. Visitors can get a better grasp of this approach to biodynamics when invited to visit a unique place of the chateau, the “tisanerie”. This drying room, steeped in a charming rusticity, stores a large collection of plants used to treat the vines so they can yield more and better to its passionate owner. To complete this special visit and increase the visitors’ awareness about this philosophy, a film on biodynamics is shown before going on to taste the famous sweet wine.
