Chateau Pape Clement 2009: A Pessac-Leognan of Great Complexity

The Chateau Pape Clement comes from the Pessac-Leognan appellation and is a Grand Cru Classe de Graves. The 50-hectare vineyard has its vines growing in Pyrenean gravel. The harvest started on September 24, and after the wine was aged in oak barrels for 18 months. Chateau Pape Clement 2009 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

The Chateau Pape Clement 2009 presents an incredible structure and magnificent tannins. On the nose, it reveals its graphite and burnt earth terroir with notes of blueberries, blackberries and vanilla. This is a full-bodied wine with great complexity. It can be drunk now or kept until 2040.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Although the 2009 Pape Clement may not be as sublime as the 2005 or 2000, but it is very close to those two efforts, and it will be fascinating to compare them (as well as the 2008 and 2010) over the following three decades. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc with a modest 13.5% alcohol, the 2009 reveals considerable structure and tannin along with tell-tale notes of burning embers, scorched earth, graphite, blueberries, blackberries and toasty vanillin, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. This rich, full offering is surprisingly backward. This cuvee should drink well in 5-6 years as one rarely has to wait a decade or more to enjoy Pape Clement. It should age for three decades or more.
