Editorial Reviews for Château Pape Clément Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Pessac-Léognan Blanc

Snooth User: Gregory Dal Piaz
2.50 5

This just reeks of new baseball glove leather with an underlay of spiced damson plum and tobacco leaf. Gains spicy tones with air offering some Christmas Cake and even minty top notes. In the mouth this starts off round and lush with a core of almost jammy cassis fruits and wonderful integration, silky, bright and focused until the mid-palate when the spitzy acidity comes and washes out the wine leaving it disjointed and unhappy. The raw material here is impressive indeed and from better bottles this may be tremendous but tonight only passable. 80pts
