An excellent red from Pessac-Leognan

Chateau Pape Clement is a Grand Cru produced in the Pessac-Leognan appellation. The vineyard is planted on a layer of Pyrenean clay and gravel dating back to the Quartenary period. Wine is aged in barrels for 18 months before bottling. The 2016 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (50%).

A mild, wet winter gave way to a spring with high rainfall and unexpected mild weather. In spite of the complicated weather conditions which slowed down development, flowering continued after a few hot and sunny days. Summer settled in after June 20th, with high heat and a drought. There was a water deficit that began in late July and lasted until mid-September. The red grapes were harvested from September 30th to October 21st.

Chateau Pape Clement 2016 has a deep purple colour with shining reflectionsEnticing aromas of blackcurrantblackberry and Morello cherries are characteristics of this vintage. As are subtle notes of liquorice and violets. Elegant in the mouth, the tannins are fine and fresh. A deep and persistent wine expressing an exceptional potential for ageing.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Blended of 60% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Pape Clement has a deep garnet-purple color and quite a serious, earthy nose with truffles, tilled soil, underbrush and smoked meats over a cassis, baked plums and redcurrants core plus a touch of lavender. Medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy, the palate is built like a brick house, supporting muscular black fruit and earthy notions and finishing very long and mineral laced.
