One of the more overt, exotic whites readers will find in 2014, the Pape Cl‚ment Blanc is built on texture and voluptuousness, with all the elements in the right place. Orange peel, mint and white flowers lead to more tropical-leaning fruits, along with a host of honey, melon and quince overtones. The Blanc retains gorgeous nuance for such a big, oily, viscous white. This is another superb showing from Bernard Magrez and his team led by Consulting Winemaker Michel Rolland.

The Château Pape-Clement Blanc 2014 is a blend of 50% Sémillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sauvignon Gris picked between 8 and 23 September. There is a tangible richness, almost decadence on the nose that actually shades the Magrez-Fombrauge Blanc. Lemon curd and dried honey soar from the glass. The palate is very well balanced, powerful in the mouth, a slight viscosity coming through towards the finish that fans out with a sense of confidence and brio. This will be utterly irresistible. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

This is layered and substantial as it should be with dried honey and apple character. Full and intense with layers of fruit. This is a serious white.

Distinctive, with lemon sherbet and yellow apple flavors, matched to white ginger, brioche and singed macadamia nut notes. Quite creamy in feel, with a paraffin hint at the very end. An overt style, but hard to deny.—J.M. Wine Spectator, April 2015.

Tropical fruit on the nose. Oleaginous. Fat and rich. Unashamedly plush though very good within that style. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2015.
