Château Pape Clément

Château Pape Clément, 2009

RRP £160

Pape-Clément’s owner, Bernard Magrez, is known to be exacting with his employees, and is equally so in his search for perfection in his wines. 2009 came pretty close, with a rich, chocolately, seriously attractive nose, displaying a touch of Rhône-esque animality, freshness, and above all poise and serenity. Harmonious, gently imposing, and majestic in the mouth. This has rich, ripe fruit, floral freshness, and just the right level of acidity and tannin to carry it through its long life to come.
