An elegant and prestigious Grand Cru Classé de Graves

A prestigious Grand Cru Classe de Graves located south of Bordeaux, Chateau Pape Clément has achieved another beautiful vintage with the 2018.

Produced in the Pessac-Leognan appellation, the Chateau Pape Clément 2018 is made from the vineyards of the estate, spread over 67 hectares, in the communes of Pessac and Gradignan.

To make the top wine of Chateau Pape Clément, the most beautiful fruit was selected through a series of rigorous trials, first in the vineyard, then with a manual sorting at the table. The juices were then added to oak vats with gravity. The pigeage of the wines was done entirely by hand. Once the maceration had been completed, the juices were poured directly into French oak casks and barrels by gravity.

Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (66%), complemented by Merlot (30%) and Cabernet Franc (4%), the Graves Grand Cru Classe Chateau Pape Clement was matured in barriques and in French oak barrels for 18 months. Product of a great vintage for the Bordeaux region, the Chateau Pape Clement 2018 shows the signature style of Bernard Magrez's Graves wines.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This wine is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc to be aged for approximately 18 months in oak barriques, 60% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Pape Clement is a little closed, slowly unfurling to reveal fragrant earth, crushed rocks, iron ore and tobacco notions over a core of crushed red and black currants plus kirsch, red roses and Ceylon tea. Full-bodied and wonderfully vivacious, it offers a solid line of firm and fine-grained tannins and amazing freshness, finishing very long and mineral laced.
