  1. 95-98 Wine Spectator Notes

  2. 96-98 Wine Advocate Notes

    This wine is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc to be aged for approximately 18 months in oak barriques, 60% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Pape Clement is a little closed, slowly unfurling to reveal fragrant earth, crushed rocks, iron ore and tobacco notions over a core of crushed red and black currants plus kirsch, red roses and Ceylon tea. Full-bodied and wonderfully vivacious, it offers a solid line of firm and fine-grained tannins and amazing freshness, finishing very long and mineral laced. LP-04/2019

  3. 93-96 Vinous Notes

    The 2018 Pape Clment is dense, powerful, and brooding. In most vintages, Pape Clment is much more showy and inviting, but the 2018 is in no mood to show all of its cards. Instead, we find a Pape Clment that explodes with vertical intensity and lift. Captivating scents of gravel, smoke, leather, tobacco, chocolate and incense add layers of complexity. I can't wait to see how the 2018 ages. Today, it is super expressive. The blend is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. New oak is 45%. Tasted four times. AG-04/2019
