TheWineCellarInsider.com, September 2018

Young, full bodied, rich and intense, the wine is loaded with dark fruit, which you can easily see in its color. There is intensity, earthyness, smoke, licorice, espresso and black cherry from start to finish. The wine is...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, May 2011

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...

jebdunnuck.com, February 2019

The 2008 Château Pape Clément checks in as a blend of 48% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with the balance tiny amounts of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. I wrote in my notes that the nose alone was worth the...

View From The Cellar, September 2012

The 2008 Château Pape Clément is a very impressive example of the vintage and a wine that I much prefer over their more seductive and overtly oaky 2009. Here, the 2008 vintage has provided a backbone in the Pape Clément...

Wine Enthusiast, April 2011

This is an impressive wine, packed with toast, yellow fruits, spice and richness. There is structure as well, the fruit layered with wood. Great balance and great potential.

A solid 2008 with subtle berry, currants and light vanilla bean character that turns to chocolate. Full body, with fine tannins and a long, long finish. Best after 2013.

Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, March 2018

(17.5/20) Zesty, energetic. Well-handled tannins which are a pleasure to encounter after the St-Émilions! Bright and fresh. Lots there.

Neal Martin's Wine Journal, May 2012

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. The Pape-Clement 2008 is noticeably deeper in colour than its peers. The nose is well defined with crisp blackberry, black olive and a touch of warm gravel. The palate is...
