Description

Château Pape Clément from the Pessac-Léognan appellation, is ranked among the Crus Classés for red wine in the Classification of Graves Wine of 1959. It is one of the oldest wine estates in Bordeaux, harvesting its 700th vintage in 2006. When the estate was omitted from the initial Graves classification of 1953 it caused some controversy considering its history and exceptional quality. The vineyard area consists of 32.5 hectares, 30 of which are planted with red grape varieties of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Le Clémentin du Pape Clément is the Chateaux’s second wine, which was only introduced in the 1980s - more accessible and also drinking younger.

Tasting Notes

The wines have a dense but lighter robe than the Médoc. The hue is ruby with a touch ranging from purple to brick depending on the evolution. The bouquet is often fruity, with currant and other red and black fruits to which are added smoked or roasted notes. Composed on average of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, the red wines of Pessac-Léognan make a good compromise between marked tannins and the greediness of the fruit.
