Chateau Cles de Pape Clement Pessac 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Subtle notions of smoke, graphite, oak, black cherries and blackberries jump from the glass of this impressively perfumed claret. Medium to full-bodied, strikingly elegant and less thick and intense than a structured vintage such as 2005, the 2010 possesses remarkably sweet tannin (sweeter than the 2005) as well as a full-bodied, long finish. It should be drinkable at an early age and keep for 20-25 years...93-95+" WA 05/11 "Very chewy, with wonderful blueberry and mineral character. Hints of mint too. Full and super classy. Love the texture of the tannins. Hyper-refined in texture…96-97." JS 4/11.

A blend of 51% Sauvignon Blanc, 33% Semillon and the rest Sauvignon Gris, this wine has staggering aromatics of orange blossom, lemon custard, pineapple and mango. Exotic, rich and full-bodied, it should drink nicely for at least 10 -15 years or more... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Pape Clement Blanc 750ml

Nicely toasty with a lovely broad stroke of mocha and ganache spread over the velvety core of plum sauce blackberry coulis and steeped currant fruit. The long polished finish keeps a tarry thread running along with the fruit adding length and range. Not shy on style. Best from 2018 through 2035. -JM Wine Spectator.

Pape Clement - Black in color smoke truffle burning wood jammy blackberry earth and hot stone aromas are found with ease. This concentrated powerful wine is filled with sweet ripe boysenberry cassis and licorice. Polished supple and opulent in texture the wine ends with a long pure fresh blackberry liqueur sensation. Some tasters will appreciate that this is toned down from the full throttle 2005. Jeff Leve.

Bright ruby-red. Complex but restrained aromas of spiced plum strawberry mocha iron tobacco and sexy oak. Wonderfully rich layered and concentrated with a chewy high-extract quality to its powerful cassis blueberry camphor and licorice flavors. Compellingly chewy but without any easy sweetness. Wonderfully intense but not at all overextracted conveying an impression of medicinal reserve that suggests this wine will be very long-lived. The extremely long elegant finish boasts noble tannins and lovely energy and lift. A great vintage for this wine but hands off for at least six or seven years. 94+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
