Château Pape Clément 2020, Pessac-Léognan, Grand Cru Classé 

Château Pape Clément 2020, Pessac-Léognan, Grand Cru Classé 

On the nose, elegant, aromatic, racy and offers a little complexity, some power (in delicacy). With notes of pulpy wild blackcurrant, strawberry and more lightly of small black berries associated with touches of cherry, bright purple plum as well as points of racy minerality, camphor, star anise, fine points of lilac and pepper. The palate is fruity, balanced and offers juiciness, smoothness, straightness as well as a certain tension, a nice acidic frame, a certain power (in softness) and a little compact/tight side. On the palate, expressing notes of pulpy/juicy blackberry, red currant and more lightly bright cherry associated with touches of purple plum, tart blueberry as well as racy minerality, star anise, zan, discreet vanilla, an imperceptible hint of fresh blond tobacco and crushed almond. The tannins are massive, well conducted, numerous, and relatively mellow. Good length. Congratulations!
