2020 Pape Clément Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1539573 97-98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lots of white peach and red apple with crushed-stone and pine-needle undertones. Full-bodied, yet compact and linear with beautiful toffee, light caramel, praline and nougat character to the fruit. Hints of wood. It shows phenolic tension and form, yet remains agile and energetic. Impressive for the vintage. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pape Clement's 2020 Blanc leaps from the glass with gregarious notions of fresh pink grapefruit, Bosc pears and lime blossoms with hints of coriander seed, yuzu zest and white pepper. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers fantastically intense citrus and pear flavors with a racy backbone and silky texture, finishing long and fragrant. The blend this year is 67% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Sémillon and 3% Sauvignon Gris, with anticipated bottling projected to be taking place on December 14 and 15, 2021. The alcohol is 13.5%.

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2020 Pape Clément Blanc is a clear step up from the Le Prélat and Clementin, delivering taut, mineral-rich citrus fruit aromas with vibrancy and tension. The palate is well balanced and seems less oaky than previous vintages when tasted from barrel. Ginger and lemongrass enliven the finish on this excellent Pape Clément Blanc.

With their 2020, Pape Clement offers the quintessential Pessac blanc experience executed to perfection. 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon, 10% Sauvignon Gris, with ageing in part oak barrels, part concrete egg tanks. Beautiful, rich tropical fruits like lychee and quince abound on the nose, while the citrusy fruit remains strictly linear and balanced on the palate, and the waxy texture is matched by a long, acid-driven finish. This is one of the great, complex white wines of the world.

An exotic beauty with hints of passion fruit, pineapple, and honeydew melon. Rich on the front palate and good acidity at the back end. Round and lush on palate. Fine indeed.
Drink from 2023 to 2032
