The 2011 Pape Clement, a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, was aged 18 months in new French oak before being bottled unfiltered. Absolutely profound, with a complex bouquet of mulberries, black cherries, black currants, graphite and subtle smoke and burning ember-like aromas, this is a true super-star of the vintage. It represents a remarkable achievement by the winemaking team of Bernard Magrez. Full-bodied, rich and multidimensional, this wine clearly transcends the entire vintage. It should age effortlessly for 25 years.
This Château Pape Clement 2011 has a deep ruby color, the nose is complex, it develops aromas of black fruits, spices, red berries and a slight woody. On the palate the wines are balanced between silky tannins and red fruits that dominate.
It is a great Pessac-Léognan expansive, tasty and deep. Particularly successful, it will be easily affordable in its early years and can flourish for at least 20 years.
The advice of 12bouteilles: Open and decant this bottle at least 1 hour before tasting. Accompany it with a beautiful piece of red meat and enjoy!
