Chateau-Pape-Clément Pessac Leognan Blanc 2009
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan|
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.
