A stunning success that has gone from strength to strength since I tasted it last year, Pape Clement is clearly one of the stars of the vintage. It boasts an inky dark plum/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of smoked meats, lead pencil shavin... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Few great growths can claim seven centuries of history, or to have a Pope's passion as their origin. The estate takes its name from its first owner Clement V, elected under Philip the Fair in 1305. The current owner has pursued his work and created a first in Bordeaux by hand-desteming the entire harvest. With a commitment to excellence, the grapes are fed under gravity into small wooden casks adapted to the surface area of each section and then vinified with the greatest care from the vine through to bottling.

Complex characteristics of smoke, meat, lead pencil shavings, sweet plums, black cherry liqueur, blackberries, and a hint of espresso are followed by an opulent, full-bodied wine with moderately high but silky tannin, a layered texture, and copious glycerin, which gives it a big, savory, expansive mouthfeel. The finish is long and persistent.

Chateau Pape Clement owes its name to its most illustrious owner, Pope C Clement V. This wine consists of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. The grapes are initially sorted in the vineyard, handpicked into small crates, manually destemmed and then put into wooden vats by gravity flow. The grapes go through cool pre-fermentation maceration and the cap is manually punched down. The wine is run off directly into new barrels via gravity flow without any pumping. It is then aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels. Robert Parker 94, Wine Spectator 93.

Intense aromas of crushed berry mineral tobacco and smoke. Full-bodied with silky tannins and loads of ripe rich fruit. Goes on for minutes. This is tight and well-structured. Best after 2011. 7 080 cases made. Wine Spectator.

A stunning success that has gone from strength to strength since I tasted it last year Pape Clement is clearly one of the stars of the vintage. It boasts an inky dark plum/purple color as well as a big sweet nose of smoked meats lead pencil shavings incense blackberries cherries and plums. Opulent and full-bodied with decent acidity lavish quantities of glycerin and concentration and sweet tannin in the long finish it should be relatively accessible in its youth but age effortlessly f
