Château Pape Clément 2016 – Pessac-Léognan

Château Pape Clément 2016 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is fine, fruity, racy and offers a nice minerality. It reveals notes of lemon and green apple associated with a discreet hint of flowers as well as slight notes of citrus and a touch of exotic fruits. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, racy, slightly fleshy and offers a nice roundness, fat, a fine tension, complexity, elegance, a fine unctuosity and minerality. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of ripe apple, ripe brugnon, ripe lemon and slight notes of tangerine, combined with a discreet hint of orange, exotic fruits (quenette, lychee, a touch of exotic fruits), a hint of wood, green almond and a subtle hint of vanilla on the background (very discreet / imperceptible). Good length. Beautiful persistence with touches of toasted wood as well as on a subtle hint of hazelnut / almond on the aftertaste.
