One of the top successes of the vintage, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot was harvested between October 8 and 24. The late harvest ensured perfect ripeness as evidenced by the sweet bouquet of black cherries, lead pencil shavings, cassis, and subtle barbecue smoke.
Well-balanced with good acidity, ripe tannins, medium to full body, and a layered mouthfeel, this excellent 2008 can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years.


Château Pape Clément is one of the oldest properties in Bordeaux. The vineyard was first planted in the 13th century by Bertrand de Goth, the youngest son of a noble family from Bordeaux. He was the Archbishop of Bordeaux and became Pope in 1305, then took the name of Clément V. 

The vineyard was run by the Bordeaux Archbishopry until the French Revolution. The estate can take pride in the production of wine in the same vineyards for over 7 centuries.
