Description

A fresh and complex Pessac-Léognan white wine

The estate

Founded in 1252, Château Pape Clément is one of the oldest Grand Crus in Bordeaux. The estate owes its name to Bertrand de Goth, Archbishop of Bordeaux, who became Pope Clement V in 1305. Since 1983, Bernard Magrez, owner of 4 Grand Cru Classés in Bordeaux, has devoted all his efforts to raising Château Pape Clément to the rank of Bordeaux's elite Grand Crus.

The vineyard

Château Pape Clément Blanc is a Pessac-Léognan wine that stems from a 9-hectare vineyard, with a density of 7,700 vines per hectare and vines that are an average of 22 years old. Planted on Pyrenean clay gravel soils, the vines are managed on a micro-parcel basis. The estate is certified High Environmental Value 3, EMS and Bee-Friendly.

The 2022 vintage

The weather in 2022 was characterised by a mild, wet winter, followed by a warm, dry spring despite an early frost spell. The summer was dry and sunny, enabling the grapes to be harvested between 28 August and 2 September.

Winemaking and ageing

After an initial sorting in the vineyard, the grapes are pressed whole in a pneumatic press, with a slow, gradual increase in pressure under an inert atmosphere to preserve the aromas. The juice is then matured in French oak barrels and casks on fine lees, with regular stirring of the lees.

Blend

Château Pape Clément Blanc 2022 is a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 24% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon Gris and 1% Muscadelle.

Characteristics and tasting tips for Château Pape Clément Blanc 2022

Tasting

This Château Pape Clément Blanc 2022 stands out for its freshness and complexity.

Colour
The wine is a golden colour with green highlights.

Nose
Delicate nose of citrus fruit, white flowers and exotic fruit.

Palate
Rich and full-bodied, with notes of grapefruit, pear and white peach, as well as hints of hazelnut, brioche and sweet spices. The finish is long and elegant.

Tasting tips

We recommend serving this wine chilled, between 10 and 12°C, and pairing with refined dishes such as seafood, grilled fish or poultry in sauce. Château Pape Clément Blanc 2022 can be enjoyed now, but will gain in complexity and harmony over the next few years in the cellar.
