  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 83

    Dried plum and berry, with orange peel character. Medium body. Medium tannins. Light finish. Slightly herbal. Disappointing.

    Mid ruby. Sweet, distinctive, rather medicinal nose. Sweet and fruity rather than earthy. In fact the fruit is more obvious in this wine than in most 1999s. Lots of delivery here even if not in classic mould. (It was interesting to taste the more restrained and classical Domaine de Chevalier alongside this wine - such a contrast!) The tannins on this wine are much less fine and fresh.

    Moderately saturated dark red. Roasted red berries, hot stones and tobacco on the nose; shallower than the '00 or '01. Offers good but not outstanding texture and sweetness, with enticing flavors of plum jam and tobacco. Nicely balanced and firm, with brisk acids contributing to the impression of structure.

    The stunning1999 Pape Clement is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Merlot. The wine is performing better from bottle than it did from cask. There is a fabulous bouquet of smoke, blueberries, raspberry cassis, and liquid minerals. This is a medium to full-bodied, layered, concentrated wine with no hard edges. As it sat in the glass, additional aromas of cedar wood, graphite, and cigar smoke emerged. This is a classic, sexy, knock-out Pessac-Leognan with a surprisingly dense, rich style for a 1999.

  • The chateau, located in the Pessac-Leognan appellation, owes its hallowed name to Bertrand de Goth, who succeeded Pope Benedict XI and took the name Clement V. Since 1939, the property has been owned by the Montagne family. The estate consists of 32 hectares, planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as a small percentage of white varieties. The flagship red is considered one of the best clarets in the region. The estate also makes a second wine, Le Clementin de Pape-Clement.

    The Pape Clement Blanc is a skillful blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle from a mere 2.5 hectares of land. A stringent selection process and approximately 18 months in French oak make this wine an absolute dream, amazingly well-priced for the quality.
