The expression of a white Grand Cru Classé from Graves

A Grand Vin from Graves, the Château Pape Clément white 2018 reflects the identity of the great terroirs from which it came.

Produced by the prestigious Grand Cru Classé of Graves Château Pape Clément, this great white wine from Graves is made in the Pessac-Léognan appellation. The vineyard is spread over an area of 19 hectares, in the commune of Pessac, south of Bordeaux.

With grape harvests beginning on August 31 and ending on September 18, the Château Pape Clément Blanc 2018 is made from Sauvignon Blanc (57%), supplemented by Sémillon (39%) and Muscadelle (4%).

After a manual harvest, the grapes were pressed in whole bunches under an inert atmosphere in order to maintain the freshness of the aromas. The juices were then drained by gravity into barrels. 15% of the Château Pape Clément white is vinified in egg-shaped cement vats. The wine is then aged on fine lees with stirring for 14 months. An important reference of Graves in an exceptional vintage for Bordeaux.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Pape Clement 2018 Blanc slips languidly from the glass with tropical notes of warm pineapples, fresh mango and green guava plus hints of nutmeg, orange blossoms, lanolin and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, rich and seductive, it is absolutely laden with tropical fruit and spice layers, with a racy line to support and long, opulent finish. The blend is 57% Sauvignon Blanc, 39% Sémillon and 4% Muscadelle. Anticipated aging regimen is 14 months in 55% new and 45% second-fill French oak barrels.
