Château PAPE CLÉMENT Dry white 2020 bottle 75cl

bottle 75cl: 105,00 €bottle 75cl

Sophisticated white wine from Pape-Clement, with a balance of tone and concentration that is always perfectly defined. Its 2020, precise, intense, discreetly woody and less smoky than usual, will be among the greatest Bordeaux whites of the decade.

Revue du Vin de France : 90-91/100 « Malgré la présence de la matière, c’est la sensation d’acidité qui domine la dégustation. Cela confère au vin beaucoup d’élan, mais aussi un caractère légèrement anguleux, qui se fondra certainement. Les arômes sont citronnés et chlorophylliens. »
Bettane & Desseauve : 93-94/100
Quarin : 92/100 « Tendre à l'attaque, puis très fruité et plaisant, le vin prend de l'énergie en milieu de bouche, en se parfumant. Il s'achève un brin salin dans la persistance, tout en fondant. »
Galloni (Vinous) : 92-95/100 « Ripe pear, tangerine oil, passionfruit, mint and jasmine open with a bit of time in the glass. The 2021 is promising. »
Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The palate is well balanced, perhaps tauter than recent vintages with a fine spine of acidity, a dab of stem ginger and lemongrass towards the finish. »

    Since 1985, Pape Clément has magnificently combined the bouquet and natural finesse of the Graves with the power of its terroir (comparable to that of the greatest Pauillac wines). It is undoubtedly one of the super seconds on the left bank.

    The 2019 vintage is rated 96/100 by Neal Martin « This fans out wonderfully on the finish. One of the finest releases from Pape-Clément in recent years. » (Feb. 2022)

    Rated 95/100 by M. Quarin «Couleur sombre, intense. Nez très aromatique au fruité mûr et complexe.» (March 2022)

    Rated 94/100 by Neal Martin « This is clearly improving in bottle and is turning into a very fine Pessac-Léognan that will give 20 years of drinking pleasure. Excellent. » (Feb. 2020)

    Rated 96/100 by Antonio Galloni « The 2017 Pape Clément is outrageously beautiful. Rich, deep and luscious on the palate, the 2017 possesses tremendous energy and richness from start to finish. [...] an unctuous, racy wine of the highest level. » (March 2020)

    Rated 94/100 by Jean-Marc Quarin « Finement charnu en entrée de bouche, le vin se développe très parfumé au milieu, tout en prenant de la puissance. Il reste très nuancé dans sa stimulation et s’achève persistant, très agréable, sur des tannins fins pleins de saveurs. » (Oct. 2020)

    Fombrauge, the largest vineyard in Saint-Émilion with 57 hectares, has been offering since its purchase by Mr. Magrez (1997) structured wines that do not deny their terroir, full, gourmet and devilishly seductive thanks to a luxurious maturing process.

    The 2019 vintage is rated 93/100 by Neal Martin « The palate is medium-bodied, fleshy and generous, with succulent ripe tannins, a satiny texture and a gossamer finish that slips down the throat. Afford it 5–6 years and this should evolve into a lovely Saint-Émilion. » (Feb. 2022)
