Pape Clement Le Château Pape Clément est un des plus anciens Grands Crus de Bordeaux. Son vignoble a été implanté au XIIIe siècle par Bertrand de Goth, cadet d’une noble famille de la région de Bordeaux. Archevêque à Bordeaux, Bertrand de Goth est devenu Pape en 1305, sous le nom de Clément V. Le Château en tire son nom. Le vignoble a ensuite appartenu à l’Archevêché de Bordeaux jusqu’à la Révolution Française. Ce domaine peut s’enorgueillir d’avoir produit du vin sur les mêmes terres pendant 7 siècles

Commentaire lthough the 2009 Pape Clement may not be as sublime as the 2005 or 2000, but it is very close to those two efforts, and it will be fascinating to compare them (as well as the 2008 and 2010) over the following three decades. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc with a modest 13.5% alcohol, the 2009 reveals considerable structure and tannin along with tell-tale notes of burning embers, scorched earth, graphite, blueberries, blackberries and toasty vanillin, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. This rich, full offering is surprisingly backward. This cuvee should drink well in 5-6 years as one rarely has to wait a decade or more to enjoy Pape Clement. It should age for three decades or more.

This 13th century vineyard situated in the suburbs of Pessac is owned by one of Bordeaux’s most interesting visionaries, Bernard Magrez. He has done a remarkable job in turning around this once moribund property that made a bevy of undrinkable wines into one of the superstars of Bordeaux.
