Château Pape Clément Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

$269

...Its sublime elegance, the power, the medium to full-bodied texture, the silky tannins, the subtle notes of smoke, lead pencil shavings, black currants, charcoal, camphor, blueberry and cassis fruit are all remarkable. It is a rich, full-throttle wine, but the elegance and the great terroir of Pape Clement come through in abundance... This wine will last 30-40+ years. Kudos to proprietor Bernard Magrez, who has built an empire based on high quality more than any other characteristic. Robert Parker

Sometimes you just have to make sure that it really is perfect... Château Pape Clément is the oldest estate in Bordeaux having first been planted in 1300 by Pope Clement V when he was the city’s Archbishop and before he became pope. The 2010 vintage was the first Pape Clément to receive 100 points from Robert Parker (“Having tasted it four times in Bordeaux, and rating it perfect three times and 99 the fourth time...”). The flamboyant and soaring aromatics are infectious and completely captivating. It smolders in your glass. Extracted and plump, voluptuously bursting at the seams with blackberry, crème de cassis, and ganache, featuring a heavy seasoning of cedar, cigar box, crushed graphite, baking spice, and espresso. The background is filled with truffle and incense, making the lavish experience that much more captivating.
