Château Pape Clément Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Ratings on Delectable

Matt Trader Delectable Pro

2012 wasn't the best year for left bank Bordeaux, but don't tell that to Pape Clement, because they crushed it! (All puns intended) Decanted from 11-4pm before jumping in, and it could have spent even more time breathing. The nose was divine - rose water, crushed gravel, pencil box, cloves, espresso bean, and mulled black fruits. The pallet was full of focused tannins and dark rich fruit - black plum, creme de casis, red licorice, red delicious apple skin, mineral, vanilla, green bell pepper, nutmeg, and a lingering finish of dark chocolate. Absolutely a full throttle wine, and this one will age just as long as their 100 pt 2010. Also, this vintage is average only $90, compared to about $250, so it is the best value in some of the best of Bordeaux. Buy all this up while you can, try one, and hold on to them for as long as you can! Hold, and drink from 2027-2047.

Tasting group 2/7/16. Blind. Brown sugar, very developed, fig. Broad, flat, astringent in the mouth. Incongruous tartness.

Very immature looking, with the relatively light robe typical of the vintage. Almost full, with a deeply set nose of plum and blackcurrent jam. Will fight the fight for a decade but, like Amy Winehouse, it doesn't have the stamina to last. Not really my cup of tea.
