This is one of the oldest properties in Bordeaux. The vineyards were first planted in the XIIIth century by Bertrand de Goth, the youngest son of a noble family from Bordeaux. He was elected Pope in 1305, during the reign of Philippe le Bel, and took the name of Clément V. Château Pape Clément belonged to the Archbishop of Bordeaux until the French Revolution. Wine has been made here continuously for 7 centuries.

Barrel sample. A wine that shows the ripe fruit of the year, but that seems to keep enough freshness. Bold and rich, very spicy wood on top of peach fruit flavors.

A big, creamy, shortbread- and white peach-filled version, with extra layers of salted butter, heather and grapefruit pulp driving through the finish. A more muscular style, but with the vivacity and length to pull it off. Best from 2014 through 2020. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 750 cases made.
