Tasting Notes Pape Clement 2006

95

The dense purple-colored 2006 boasts an extraordinary perfume of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, burning embers, and a sensation that can only be described as like walking through a damp forest on a hot, humid day. Full-bodied, extraordinarily textured, and multidimensional with an amazingly long finish of nearly 60 seconds, this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot from a 75-acre vineyard is a compelling wine that is one of the stars of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030. I can't say enough about the extraordinary work proprietor Bernard Magrez, assisted by the internationally renowned Michel Rolland, is doing at Pape-Clement. From this outstanding terroir, he comes close to rivaling what both Haut-Brion and La Mission-Haut-Brion are accomplishing a few miles away. Following the prodigious 2005 Pape-Clement, it would be hard to believe the next vintage could nearly match its predecessor. However, that is what has happened at this estate with both white and red, by the way.

A clear garnet core with deep ruby rim. The nose is very well delineated with blackberry, black plum, crushed stones, a touch of Hoi Sin complemented by touches of liquorice and violet. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins and picking at straws, a little too sweet for my liking vis-a-vis the structure. Drying tannins, a lot of extract here, quite rigid but very linear and focused on the finish. Still backward and very youthful, I would recommend cellaring this for five or six years. Drink 2017-2035. Tasted July 2010.
