WINE PROFILE

Other Notes

Château Pape Clément owes its name to its most illustrious owner. A man of the cloth born in 1264, Bertrand de Goth became Bishop of Comminges, in the Pyrenees Mountains, at the age of 31; he later became Archbishop of Bordeaux in 1299.

Ratings

This has a tautness and an intensity to it, with extremely well placed citrus and white peach flesh, a lick of fresh slate and some wet stones. Good quality. 

94 Points Decanter

Tasting Notes

Enticing, with a lush brioche frame taking shape around a core of yellow apple, pear, green fig and straw flavors. Shows a long echo of macadamia nut on the finish. Will be on the exotic side and a winner when bottled. 

96 Points Wine Spectator

A blend of 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Sémillon, the Pape Clement 2017 Blanc gives up profound notes of apricots, spiced pears and apple tart with suggestions of orange blossoms, fresh ginger and beeswax. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of tightly wound, intense stone fruit and spicy layers supported by fantastic freshness, finishing very long.
