  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    (bottled in February of this year) Bright, pale yellow. Complex nose offers lemon drop, fresh herbs, flowers and resiny oak. Very rich and full in the mouth, and more complex than the young 2006 despite the recent bottling. Fresh flavors of candied ginger, flowers and lemon drop showcase the richness and depth-as well as the sappy character-of this vintage. Impressively long on the aftertaste. A great showing.

    An outstanding combination of 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Semillon, this full-bodied, dry white boasts copious quantities of lemon grass, honeysuckle, and apple notes backed up by hints of wood, quince, and nectarines. Concentrated, with admirable acidity, richness, and a more forward style than its neighbors, Laville Haut-Brion and Haut-Brion, this beauty can be enjoyed now and over the next 10-15 years.

    Smoky, rich and utterly captivating texture. Lovely stuff! Lemon curd blended with whipped cream. Long and complete. Holds its alcohol well. Very neat and long.

  • 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.
