Chateau Pape Clement 2010

Bordeaux - Pessac-Leognan - Red Chateau Pape Clement Chateau Pape Clement 2010 1062/10
  • Parker : 100
  • J. Robinson : 16,5
Gaining 5 points after retasting, Chateau Pape Clement 2010 is what Parker calls "perfection in a bottle." Parker effusively admits that he "certainly underestimated" the vintage when he first tasted it back in 2011. A wine of "sublime elegance" Pape Clement 2010 is 51% Merlot, 47.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1.5% Petit Verdot. On the nose Parker found notes of "subtle notes of smoke, lead pencil shavings, black currants, charcoal, camphor, blueberry and cassis fruit. This wine deserves almost a decade of aging and will last for another 30-40 years

Wine Advocate-Parker :
I certainly underrated the 2010 Pape Clement from barrel, rating it only 93-95+. (Thank God I put a "plus" there!) Having tasted it four times in Bordeaux, and rating it perfect three times and 99 the fourth time, this final blend of 51% Merlot, 47.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1.5% Petit Verdot is perfection in a bottle. Tipping the scales at 14.5% natural alcohol, there are 8,000 cases of it. Its sublime elegance, the power, the medium to full-bodied texture, the silky tannins, the subtle notes of smoke, lead pencil shavings, black currants, charcoal, camphor, blueberry and cassis fruit are all remarkable. It is a rich, full-throttle wine, but the elegance and the great terroir of Pape Clement come through in abundance. It is slightly more developed and evolved than the 2005 was at a similar point in its evolution, but it certainly needs another 5-7 years to develop further nuances, which it surely will. This wine will last 30-40+ years.;2013 - 2053
