2008 Pape-Clément Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Previously $160)

SKU #1402870 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2008 Château Pape Clément Blanc is still going strong and has impressive purity and freshness. Classy notes of lemon curd, pineapple, flowers, and honeysuckle all emerge from this beautifully mineral-laced effort, and it’s medium-bodied, vibrant and balanced on the palate. The blend of the 2008 is 45% Semillon, 43% Sauvignon, and the rest Sauvignon Gris. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 45% Semillon, 43% Sauvignon Blanc, 8% Sauvignon Gris and 4% Muscadelle that hit 14.5% natural alcohol from yields of 22 hectoliters per hectare, this beauty offers up exotic notes of orange marmalade, lemon custard and citrus oil. (RP) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is an impressive wine, packed with toast, yellow fruits, spice and richness. There is structure as well, the fruit layered with wood. Great balance and great potential. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2011)

91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (a blend of 66% sauvignon blanc, 30% semillon, and 4% muscadelle) Light straw-gold. Ripe, appealing aromas of yellow melon and green fig, complicated by quince, vanilla and white chocolate. Rich and suave on the palate, with more melon and guava flavors. This very classy, impeccably balanced wine has a long, clean finish featuring a lingering note of white pepper and a distinctly saline quality. Tasted three different times with consistently high scores. (ID) Inner quote mark (5/2009)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is really racy and pure, with gorgeous yellow apple, melon rind, chamomile, straw and quinine notes that drive through the lengthy, well-defined finish. Shows impressive focus. (JM) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

K&L Notes

92 points Neal Martin: "Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. The white Pape-Clement never convinced out of barrel, but it appears to have really blossomed in bottle. It has a very attractive nose with scents of lemon peel, almond, orange peel and white peach that are well defined and very fresh. The palate is very well balanced with a subtle note of ginger on the entry; very well integrated oak with a lovely caressing, waxy finish with hints of lemon curd and dried pineapple. Tasted January 2012." (for RobertParker.com)
