Château Pape Clément Pessac-Léognan 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The grampes are initially sorted in the vineyard, hand-picked into small crates, and then sorted again in the vat room. They are neither destemmed nor crushed. Gentle pressing of whole grapes, with a gradual increase in pressure. The wine is run off by gravity flow in new French oak barrels for fermentation. Ageing on the fine lees for 10-12 months.

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.
