Chateau Pape Clement Blanc 2005 Graves Grand Cru Classe 75cl / 14%
A bottle of 2005 Château Pape Clément white wine from Bordeaux's Graves appellation. This is a blend of 50% Sémillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Muscadelle.
'The '2005 Pape Blanc' has a very open, expressive nose with plumes of white peach, brioche and vanillary new oak. Moderate definition - just a little obvious. The palate is more succinct with the oak more enmeshed into the wine, nice acidity, subtle brioche and white peach tones leading to an elegant finish. Once the nose calms down and subsumes the new oak, this will be very fine wine and the creamy finish is just irresistible. Drink 2010-2025. Tasted January 2009. 95/100' Neal Martin, RobertParker.com
