TASTING NOTES

"A solid and four-square white with lemon-rind and dried-apple character. Pears, too. Full and dense with layers of fruit and phenolic character. Red wine texture in a white. One for aging." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2016 Pape Clement Blanc is a blend of 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Sémillon that was cropped at 45 hectoliters per hectare between 12-27 September. It has quite an understated bouquet, stony and a little distant at first but then opening up with lime flower, kiwi fruit and a touch of limestone. The palate is fresh on the entry, the Sauvignon Blanc driving this Pape Clement along, perhaps less flamboyant and viscous in style than previous vintages, but I appreciate the tautness and delineation here, the persistent and slightly saline finish. This is excellent." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #230

"The 2016 Pape Clément Blanc is rich and inviting to the core. A wine of notable depth and viscosity, it nevertheless retains striking freshness and verve. In 2016, a challenging year for whites, most wines are missing something, most often freshness or body. Pape Clément Blanc, on the other hand, has it all. The 2016 is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Creamy-edged, with alluring brioche, white peach and wet straw flavors, this has a broad feel but keeps good cut thanks to a light verbena thread. The brioche note takes over on the finish." Wine Spectator
