Dark ruby. A classic expression of left-bank Bordeaux with blackcurrant, black cherry, leather, cedar, and cloves characteristics. Tannins have calmed down, so it's starting to drink nicely now, but still has lots of life left in it as well (note that we tasted from a Magnum).

One of the top successes of the vintage, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot was harvested between October 8 and 24. The late harvest ensured perfect ripeness as evidenced by the sweet bouquet... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Pape Clement 750ml

Dense and rich, with spice, honey and apple pie character. There's lovely richness and freshness for the vintage. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Pape Clement Blanc 750ml

One of the top successes of the vintage this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 45% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot was harvested between October 8 and 24. The late harvest ensured perfect ripeness as evidenced by the sweet bouquet of black cherries lead pencil shavings cassis and subtle barbecue smoke. Well-balanced with good acidity ripe tannins medium to full body and a layered mouthfeel this excellent 2008 can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years. Robert Parkers W

55% Cabernet Sauvignon 42% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. Cropped at only 30 hectoliters per hectare Aromas of dark berry and spice along with intriguing notes of herbs charcoal and a light floral touch. Rich and concentrated with a supple texture the dark berry flavors mix well with coffee bean mocha and a trace of herbs. Impressive from barrel this is showing well now too. What a great effort-an outstanding and complete offering from Pape Clement! Accessible now the structure bodes we

Winemaker's Notes:

Not far off the quality of the monumental 2005, Pape Clement's 2008 wascropped at a lowly 30 hectoliters per hectare. The final blend is 55% Cab.Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot. The 2008 displays a classicnorthern Pessac-Leognan nose of truffles, asphalt, scorched earth, charcoal,creme de cassis, spice box, and spring flowers. Super-pure and medium tofull-bodied with stunning concentration, admirable purity, slightly moreacidity than usual, and formidable depth and length, given the sweetness of thetannins and the ripeness of the fruit, this wine should be approachable in 4-5years.
