Tasting Notes

Vinous – 98

The 2020 Pape Clement is outrageously beautiful. Dark, virile and imposing, the 2020 is a rare vintage of Pape Clement that is vertical and statuesque in feel. Dark fruit, chocolate, new leather, licorice and cloves infuse the palate with tremendous depth. In a word: magnificent. [Antonio Galloni, 23/02/2023]

Anticipated maturity: 2030-2050

Cask sample. Perhaps a little more closed than their Clementin. Great integrity to the fruit though, and there is a sense of decorum and breeding to the fruit, as well as stunning length. Super-fine tannins, refreshing acidity, everything in proportion. (RH) [10/05/2021]

Robert Parker – 97

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2020 Pape Clement comes barreling out of the glass with bold notes of cassis, plum preserves and licorice, giving way to scents of cedar chest, crushed rocks, charcoal and pencil lead. The medium to full-bodied palate is tightly coiled with beautiful tension and a firm, finely grained texture locking in the layers of black fruits and minerals, finishing with great length and energy. The blend this year is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot, aging mainly in French oak barriques, 66% new, with about 10% aging in large oak foudres. The wine will spend approximately 18 months in barrels. [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 17/04/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2028-2060
