Pape-Clement-Blanc-Pessac-Leognan-2014

Pape Clement, Blanc (Pessac Leognan), 2014

“Complex aromas of sliced apples, honey, pineapple and honeysuckle with hints of stones. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a beautiful finish. Intense and powerful. A combination of density and power. What a great finish. Drink in 2022 but fantastic to taste now.”
- James Suckling (97 points)

“The 2014 Pape Clément Blanc is unctuous and beautifully textured, with soft contours and fabulous overall balance. Orchard fruit, apricot and gentle spice notes all come together in an open-knit Pessac-Léognan white that will drink well upon release. Lightly tropical notes and a kiss of French oak add closing nuance. As always, the Pape Clément Blanc is one of the most flamboyant whites – maybe the most flamboyant white – in Bordeaux, and yet all the elements fall into place effortlessly. Tasted three times.”
Vinous (93 points)

“As ever with this wine, there is clear oak barrel influence from the first attack, giving a rich intensity to the stone fruits, majoring on peach and mango. Fairly high alcohol, staying true to the house style but with a very attractive acidity underneath. This is sweet, rich, but with a biting lift.”
