The 2015 Pape Clement Blanc is a blend of 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon and 10% Sauvignon Gris picked between 12 and 15 September at 29.5 hl/ha. Around 15% of the production was aged on egg-shaped concrete tanks. The nose is actually more introverted than the deuxième vin at the moment, but the complexity is locked in via shucked oyster shell and citrus notes. The palate is extremely well balanced with a keen line of acidity that imparts tension and freshness. This is a succinctly crafted white Bordeaux, almost understated at first, but it is only when it departs down the throat that its quality become apparent. Like the aforementioned deuxième vin, this comes highly recommended. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2035

So dense and powerful. Layered and chewy. Phenolic. Full body, dried apple and pear. Pineapple too. Goes on for minutes. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

This relies on a fairly obvious oak treatment, with lush macadamia, butter and brioche notes coating the core of creamed apple and melon flavors. Shows threads of verbena and chamomile, but they’re way in the background. For fans of the style only. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Low-key nose. Broad and sweet and floral. Lots of fat on the palate. Not one of the most refreshing. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2016-2020
