Château Pape Clément (2016)

New

The 2016 Pape Clément has a really attractive nose of red berry fruit, cassis, black cherry, blackcurrant and spice. The vines here are planted on clay gravels. Dark ruby, the palate is medium-bodied with good tannin structure, an attractive, taut acidity and a nice lift at the end. It feels like it has been reined in this year, which is pleasing and will appeal to traditional Claret drinkers.

    Located in Pessac-Léognan, Château Pape Clément is one of the oldest estates in Bordeaux, with records of vineyard plantings going back to 1300. Today the vineyards are planted predominately with Cabernet Sauvignon (approximately 60%) and Merlot. In 1939 vigneron Paul Montagne took over the château and with the help of the brilliant oenologist Émile Peynaud by 1949 the results of their efforts were starting to show. Following his father’s death, Léo Montagne took over the property with Bernard Magrez (owner of Château La Tour Carne) and they enrolled the help of wine winemaker Michel Rolland as a consultant. Today, Château Pape Clément produces one of the best red wines in Bordeaux.
