Description

98   James Suckling
“Beautiful aromas of lime curd, dried pear, grilled white peach and flint on the nose. So exotic on the nose. Some cream and honey, too. It’s medium-bodied with bright, tangy acidity. Creamy and focused with lingering dried-citrus and crushed-gravel notes. Long. Drink or hold.” (March 2020)

94-96   Jeb Dunnuck
“White flowers, citrus, lemon curd, and honeysuckle notes all emerge from the 2018 Château Pape Clément Blanc, which is a blend of 57% Sauvignon Blanc, 29% Sémillon, and 4% Muscadelle. Full-bodied, concentrated, beautifully balanced, and with integrated acidity, it’s another smoking good white from this estate” (May 2019)

95   Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“The 2018 Blanc is a blend of 57% Sauvignon Blanc, 39% Sémillon and 4% Muscadelle. It was aged for around 14 months in 55% new and 45% second-fill French oak barrels. It races out of the gate with flamboyant scents of pineapple upside-down cake, lemon meringue pie and honey-drizzled peaches, plus suggestions of orange blossoms and yuzu peel. The medium to full-bodied palate has a decadent touch of oiliness to the texture with loads of spicy sparks to the tropical fruit layers, finishing long with a refreshing burst of zestiness. It’s a richer expression, for sure, but it really works and it is seriously scrumptious. Drink: 2022-2034” (March 2020)
