Pape made a very finely crafted and elegant wine this vintage, with plenty of berries, spice, and earth character. Hazelnuts, too. Medium-bodied, savory, and lightly spicy on the finish. Creamy tannins. Really fine, with lovely length. ~95-96 James Suckling
The 2021 Pape Clément exhibits notions of sweet berries and cherries mingled with rich aromas of espresso roast, black truffles, toasty new oak, and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, deep, and quite extracted in style, it's a rich, fleshy wine that gained integration and harmony over the three weeks I spent in Bordeaux. Tasted three times. ~91-94 WA
Concentrated and intense nose with subtle violet and perfume flecks. Quite chewy and grippy on the palate, this has more of a chunky frame than many others with mouthwatering acidity, plush tannins, and a good dose of strawberry, blackcurrant, and black cherry fruit edged by eucalyptus and licorice. You get the liveliness but also the density and the gentle power and I love the minerality at the end, a touch of salinity as well as cedar, clove, bitter dark chocolate, and slate. You've got a lot going on with this wine and it's one of the more confident wines from the Bernard Magrez stable in the vintage. This could be very excellent. 1% Petit Verdot completes the blend. Tasted twice. Drinking Window 2025 - 2045. ~94 Decanter
