The unequal style of an iconic Graves Classified Growth

Testifying to a rich wine tradition built on more than 7 centuries of history, Château Pape Clément is one of the oldest top-ranked wines in the Bordeaux region.

As a true icon, Château Pape Clément represents the quintessential style of Bordeaux, with exceptional and luxurious wines, which seduce immediately in their youth while evolving superbly over time time.

Looking out over the 63-hectare vineyard located in the heart of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, Château Pape Clément enjoys an exceptional terroir, combining sandy-gravel soils and clay-limestone soils on a limestone subsoil rich in iron.

A true benchmark from the visionary Bernard Magrez, Château Pape Clément harmoniously brings together the respect for tradition and viticultural know-how with the right dose of modern innovation (a drone is used to monitor evolving vineyard parcels) and this allows the terroir every opportunity to give the best of itself in the estate’s wines.

Coming from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (55%) and Merlot (45%), the Château Pape Clément Rouge 2017 brilliantly conveys an uncompromising and constant quest for excellence.

From the grapes to the cellar, nothing has been left to chance to reveal the most beautiful expression of this exceptional terroir. The Château Pape Clément Rouge 2017 expresses the profile of its vintage while preserving the estate’s signature identity. The nose gives a frank, powerful and aromatic profile while the palate offers structure and density without losing finesse. This is truly a Pape Clément.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The current blend of the 2017 Pape Clement is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it sings of crushed black cherries, black raspberries and mulberries with hints of lilacs and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied with a firm, grainy frame and wonderful freshness, it possesses great elegance and effortless intensity with a mineral-tinged finish.
