Château Pape Clément 2015 – Pessac-Léognan, Grand Cru Classé de Graves

The nose is elegant, fine, fruity and offers concentration and a certain opulence. It reveals notes of blackberry and cassis combined with a hint of fresh plum, violet, flint as well as a toasted hint and a discreet hint of pepper. The palate is fruity, mineral, balanced, elegant, relatively sleek and offers a nice freshness and a slight creaminess. On the palate this wine expresses notes of jam blackberry and cassis combined with a touch of red fruits, flint, violet as well as a toasted touch and quite discreet notes of hazelnut on the finish. Tannins are fine, elegant, slightly grainy and offers a beautiful maturity (for an EnPrimeur wine). Good length. Beautiful potential!
