    This is very dense for the vintage on the center palate and then rolls out on the palate. Full-bodied, tight and tannic. Very polished and refined at the end. Precise. A little more cabernet sauvignon in the blend gives this the tension

    The current blend of the 2017 Pape Clement is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it sings of crushed black cherries, black raspberries and mulberries with hints of lilacs and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied with a firm, grainy frame and wonderful freshness, it possesses great elegance and effortless intensity with a mineral-tinged finish.

  • 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.
