Pape Clement harvested its grapes under excellent weather conditions, allowing the estate to obtain grapes with luscious fruit aromas and ripe, full tannins. The blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc of Pape Clément 2015 created a wine displaying an ink-like color. The wine is dense not only in hue but also in aromatic expression. Black fruits dominate, mingling bing cherries and crushed blackberries against a backdrop of black pepper and hints of cedar. On the palate, the wine develops gradually showing a neat structure, with soft if not creamy tannins. The tannic texture is well structured and the whole is supported by firm acidity. The retro-olfaction shows hints of liquorice giving an extra touch of freshness to this Pessac-Léognan. A Pape Clement playing with concentration and finesse.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Pape Clement is blended of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, matured in 80% new and 20% one-year-old French oak barrels for 18 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple, it opens with profound notes of crushed red and black currants, black cherries and cassis with touches of mocha, baking spices, menthol and lavender plus a hint of new leather. Medium-bodied, firm and concentrated with tons of tightly wound black fruit and earth layers, it has a grainy frame and refreshing lift on the long finish.
