Tasting Notes

The second label of Graves Grand Cru Classé Château Pape Clément, one of the oldest estates in Bordeaux that dates back to the 1200s. This is a great buy from an outstanding vintage. Lots of earth and minerals. Sweet on the palate after one hour open.

    A thirty year old great value wine for less than $40. We discovered about fifty cases at Chateau Pape Clement when we were tasting there in April 2016. We bought it on the spot. Lots of earth and minerals. Sweet on the palate after one hour open. The second wine of Pape Clement is super.

    I love the nose of this wine, classic Pessac, gravel, tobacco, leather and earth yet I wasn't expecting as much mid palate richness from a 1988 vintage, if you remember 1988's were a bit tannic on release but this wine is delicious and shows lots of velvety texture and at this price it is ridiculously good.
    Drink from 2017 to 2020
