Le Clementin Du Pape Clement

Bernard Magrez

Chateau Pape Clément Grand Cru Classé de Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

An extensive history with this Pessac-Leognan estate. In 1305 Bertrand de Goth, a major landowner in Bordeaux as well as its Archbishop, became Pope Clement V and the city named this estate in his honour. From 1939 it was owned by the Montagne family, and passed by marriage into the ownership of Bernard Magrez. After a 20 minute decant, aromas of vanilla, raspberry, pepper, menthol - minty, dusty and aristocratic. “Damn good claret” as the old boys in Pall Mall would say! JH said more like the Medoc than Pessac-Leognan on the nose. The medium bodied palate has become more savoury and less fruit driven at 17 years but still works extremely well - seamless. 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the 1001 wines. — 9 months ago

Colli Orientali del Friuli Sauvignon 2017

Fun Italian outlier for our SB lunch from @Eric LaMasters noticeable depth and concentration. It unfurled slowly but I’d say it was right there with the Pape Clement and Silex for most unique wine of the day. — 3 years ago

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

2010 Bordeaux zoom tasting with Lisa Perrott-Brown, editor in chief for RP Wine Advocate. The wines have been shut down, some waking up...big wines with volume turned up on everything (tannin, acidity, alcohol), structured, and should cellar for many years.

@Shay A . Check out Robert Parker a matter of taste website for updates. They hold terrific live events (NY, Napa, etc). But, recently doing zoom events...2010 Bordeaux and Rhone valley before this. Also, check out Decanter events (most for Europe..darn). But for US, doing a taped zoom tasting....Verite: evolution of a decade.. 2008 vintage and 2018 vintage tasting kit of the 6 wines and watch tasting with Pierre Seillan & Helena Seillan. Cheers!

I preferred this white Bordeaux over the Pape Clement. This was mellow and easy drinking with notes of rose petals, honey and a touch of citrus. Great wine. — a year ago

Pessac-Léognan White Bordeaux Blend 2016

OMG we purchased this a few years ago, drank the others but discovered this tonight. The price on this is steep but if you want a treat, its worth it. The Semillion balances the Sauv Blanc in a earthy Bordeaux style. Long finish, crisp, with great body — 2 years ago
