ABOUT THE WINE
Chateau Pape Clement has a long and interesting history in Bordeaux – the first recorded grape harvest took place in 1252! The chateau is named after the property’s founder, Pope Clément V, one of the Avignon Popes during a schism in the Catholic Church in the 1300s. Today the vineyard is owned by Bernard Magrez, under whose direction the estate has flourished. 20 hectares of vines, neighbour to Haut Brion, although with a slightly cooler micro-climate. 2.5 hectares are planted to white grapes.

TASTING NOTES
Deep, perfumed aromas and superb concentration; graphite, plums, cassis and spice. The palate is medium-bodied, with tannins adding texture rather than grip. A superb achievement for the vintage, due in no small part to extremely low yields.

FOOD PAIRING
Perfect for beef dishes, although the medium-weight of the wine makes it good for feathered game and chicken as well.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Located a few miles from Haut-Brion, Pape Clément has undergone significant regeneration under the stewardship of Bernard Magrez, and is increasingly able to compete with its illustrious neighbour.
