This is a powerful second wine of Pape Clément with a dense and deep palate of dark berries, chocolate and walnuts, as well as stone and minerals. Full body, yet compact and chewy with a polished and intense tannin backbone. With the addition of Le Sartre in this second wine, it is now its own wine.
94-95 points, James Suckling (Apr 2019)
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Clémentin de Pape Clement offers seductive scents of warm black plums, blackcurrant cordial and Black Forest cake with hints of mocha, Indian spices and violets. Full-bodied, rich and velvety textured, it fills the mouth with black fruit preserves and plenty of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.
