About Chateau Pape Clement
Named in 1305 for its proprietor, Pope Clement V, Pape Clément is one of several Pessac-Leognan estates that are actually located within the city limits of Bordeaux.
93-96 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010
Ruby-purple. Vibrant blackcurrant, blackberry and smoke aromas show noteworthy depth and purity. Big and ripe on the palate, but with lovely balance to its black fruit and smoke flavors. The very long, pure finish features a lingering mineral streak and very fine tannins. This exceptional vintage of Pape Clement packs an amazing amount of concentration on a seemingly weightless frame. More important still, although it pushes the ripeness envelope as most of the wines of Bernard Magrez do, it manages to come across as refined and graceful, even though it's almost brutally powerful.
