One of the stars of the vintage, this blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot reveals sweet burning ember, charcoal, barbecue smoke, black currant, plum, and graphite notes. This opulent, impressively endowed, medium to full-bodied 2007 possesses sweet tannin and a long finish. It can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years.

Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. The Pape-Clement 2007 has very fine clarity on the nose with blackberry, raspberry, a touch of cedar and earth. Nice definition and lift. The palate is medium-bodied, a saline tang on the entry, grippy tannins with a masculine grippy, dry finish. This needs time, very backward and a little grouchy at the moment. Tasted January 2011.
