TASTING NOTES

"Half Cabernet, half Merlot, just like its neighbors in Pessac, and a marvelous texture enabling an expression of the terroir, more specifically precocious smoky notes dues to the Merlot on this terroir. Great wine, with better harmony than the 2015 at its birth." Michel Bettane/Thierry Desseauve, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 56

"This is phenomenal with a density and finesse that are hard to remember for this wine. Full-bodied, tight and polished. Seamless texture and salty undertones. Goes on for minutes. Truly great. What a barrel sample." JamesSuckling.com

"Intense, with vivacious cassis, blueberry and boysenberry confiture notes, while tar, anise and warm fruitcake flavors pulse underneath. Offers seriously flashy toast at the end, but has the density to soak it up. A big wine." Wine Spectator

"The 2016 Pape Clément exudes class and is one of the raciest, silkiest wines I have ever tasted here. The purity and intensity of the flavors is striking. Dark cherry, chocolate, spice and leather open up first. The full range of aromatics has not developed yet - that will come with time. Today, it is the wine's balance that is most remarkable." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Very luscious nose with enormous opulence. Then on the palate there is no great sweetness but drying tannins on the finish. Something not quite fully ripe phenolically on the palate. Hint of greenness. Falls away on the end. It’s definitely front-loaded! " JancisRobinson.com
