Chateau Pape Clement Pessac-Leognan 2010
Founded in 1300, on Bordeaux’s esteemed Left Bank, Chateau Pape Clement has been crafting high-quality, Cabernet based blends for centuries. Current owner Bernard Magrez, alongside highly regarded Michel Rolland, have continued to transform this unique terroir, rivaling some of the greatest neighboring First Growths. The 2010 vintage is a 51/47.5/1.5 blend of Cab, Merlot, and Petit Verdot, oozing with power and silky full-bodied texture. Notes of graphite, smoke, and cassis dominate, and will continue to develop over the next 3-4 decades.
