Description

98-99  James Suckling
“This is a cylinder of dense fruit and phenolic intensity, yet it remains agile and vivid with cooked-apple, honey and cream character, compounding the fantastic texture and structure. A great white with the same gravitas as a red.” (4/2019)

94-96+ Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“The Pape Clement 2018 Blanc slips languidly from the glass with tropical notes of warm pineapples, fresh mango and green guava plus hints of nutmeg, orange blossoms, lanolin and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, rich and seductive, it is absolutely laden with tropical fruit and spice layers, with a racy line to support and long, opulent finish. The blend is 57% Sauvignon Blanc, 39% Sémillon and 4% Muscadelle. Anticipated aging regimen is 14 months in 55% new and 45% second-fill French oak barrels.” (4/2019) Lisa Perrotti-Brown

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.” (4/2019)

94-96  Wine Enthusiast
“This is a perfumed wine, ripe with fragrant yellow fruits that are sliced with lemony acidity. It is a stylish, intense wine, while at the same time strongly textured and therefore sure to age well.” (4/2019)

93-96  Wine Spectator
“This is on the showy side, with a brioche frame around creamed white peach, yellow apple, honeysuckle and lemon curd notes. Long finish.” (4/2019)
