Chateau Pape Clement Blanc Grand Cru Classe 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is a juicy and luscious white. Not the perfect 2009. But really delicious and impressive. It's full-bodied, with creamy, floral and apple pie character. Lots of new wood and ripe fruit. Better in 2015. But up front and sexy now. ...94" JamesSuckling.com 02/13 "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...95" WA 02/13 "Pape Clément Blanc is my favorite wine in the region after Haut-Brion Blanc, and the 2010 is again very long on personality and complexity. But this is a wine that really shows the ripeness of the vintage, and while it is flashy in a Las Vegas sort of way, it will never be ranked amongst the great vintages of this lovely wine. The complex and very ripe nose offers up scents of figs, candied limes, petrol, cut grass, a touch of orange zest and a judicious framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and really borderline overripe, with a fine core of fruit, quite good focus and complexity, but soft acids and a touch of backend burn from the high alcohol...." JG 10/12
