Tasting Notes Pape Clement 2010

96

Intense blueberry nose with great precision and expression. Full and vibrant on the palate with a minty note. Vanilla. Wonderful structure. Firm but ripe tannins and very long. Needs time to soften. Great potential. Try in 2016.

Tasted at the UGC in London and then at the chateau. The Grand Vin is a blend of 51% Merlot, 47.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1.5% Petit Verdot and bottled after 18 months in barrel (80% new oak) without fining or filtration. It has a relatively understated, again quite “classic” bouquet that is very “Graves” in style – a little earthy with hints of tobacco and cedar. The aromatics gain some momentum in the glass, offering a black olive tapenade. The palate is medium-bodied with a very supple entry. Again, I appreciate the acidity to this Pape Clement that binds those dusky, earthy black fruit together and then it builds nicely towards the peppery finish. This Pape Clement effortlessly conveys its terroir – excellent. Tasted November 2012.

I certainly underrated the 2010 Pape Clement from barrel, rating it only 93-95+. (Thank God I put a “plus” there!) Having tasted it four times in Bordeaux, and rating it perfect three times and 99 the fourth time, this final blend of 51% Merlot, 47.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1.5% Petit Verdot is perfection in a bottle. Tipping the scales at 14.5% natural alcohol, there are 8,000 cases of it. Its sublime elegance, the power, the medium to full-bodied texture, the silky tannins, the subtle notes of smoke, lead pencil shavings, black currants, charcoal, camphor, blueberry and cassis fruit are all remarkable. It is a rich, full-throttle wine, but the elegance and the great terroir of Pape Clement come through in abundance. It is slightly more developed and evolved than the 2005 was at a similar point in its evolution, but it certainly needs another 5-7 years to develop further nuances, which it surely will. This wine will last 30-40+ years. Kudos to proprietor Bernard Magrez, who has built an empire based on high quality more than any other characteristic.
