Château Pape Clément

Thought by some to produce one of the finest clarets, Pessac-Léognan(Graves) is home to the famous Chateau Haut-Brion. This is a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. – Featured in the 2021 edition of Le Guide Hachette des Vins de France , the best respected annual consumer guide to French wines.
The 2016 vintage was rated as a vin remarquable! A wine of good density ruby red, with brown, mahogany, biscuit hints. It has maintained its luster and clarity. The rim is fairly thick. The tears are fine, clear, abundant and regular. Smell: At once expressive, forthright and complex. There are notes of all families of fragrance: fruit, flowers, and spices. Taste: The attack is forthright, round and suave, soothing even. The intense aromas initially recall the complexity of the nose. There is leather and lightly charred wood, and roasted notes. The beauty of the vintage is revealed by its elegance rather than its full-flavor. The wine has an attractive aromatic range with a finish of remarkable elegance. [Chateau Pape Clement]
The wine is made from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc
