The unequal style of an iconic Graves Classified Growth

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

As a true icon, Chateau Pape Clement 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-Leognan appellation, Chateau Pape Clement 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, Chateau Pape Clement 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 Chateau Pape Clement 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 Chateau Pape Clement 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 Clement.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Pape Clement is composed of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot, with a nose that is slightly closed at this youthful stage--broody and earthy with baked plums, boysenberries and mulberries aromas plus touches of iron ore, tobacco, tapenade and charcuterie. The palate is medium-bodied and elegant with exquisitely ripe tannins, lovely energy and freshness and a long, mineral-laced finish.
