Chateau Pape Clement is one of the rising stars of white Graves according to some wine journalists. The Pape-Clement Blanc is made from 45% Semillion, 45% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Muscadelle, 5% Sauvignon Gris. In the bouquet elderflowers and elderberries with fine notes new oak.

The expression of the fruit is quite sweet with a quite strong impression of oak in the finish. In my view the high alcohol level and the dense rather sweet fruit is somewhat over the top – not a wine for my palate!
