Château Pape Clément Blanc, crus classés de Graves 2019

RRP €52

Not hugely expressive initially, gradually yielding a savoury blend of dried mosses, brown spice and sulfurous notes over warming apricot fruit. Texture is oily and unctuous with acid only apparent around the edges but still just maintaining balance. Powerful mid palate and long, rich-fruited finish.
