Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, March 2020

Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Pape Clement comes wafting sensuously from the glass with fragrant notions of dried roses, Chinese five spice and sandalwood over a core of kirsch, warm cassis and plum preserves plus a...

Inky depths to the colour, barely budging at 11 years old. This is excellent, showing the incredible potential of this site. Everything is delivered slowly and carefully, plenty of tannic grip, very little evolution in...

Intense blueberry nose with great precision and expression. Full and vibrant on the palate with a minty note. Vanilla. Wonderful structure. Firm but ripe tannins and very long. Needs time to soften. Great potential. Try...

Neal Martin's Wine Journal, March 2011

Tasted three times the Pape-Clement '10 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot this has a surprisingly conservative bouquet but with very fine delineation and clarity. Blackberry and a touch of briary. The...

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Pape-Clement 2010 has a lovely floral, generous bouquet with vibrant vivacious blackberry and crushed strawberry fruit with very well integrated oak, much more...

Vinous, April 2020

The 2010 Pape Clément has a gorgeous bouquet with vibrant red berry fruit, camphor, raspberry preserve and just a hint of marmalade - very seductive and classy. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins and good...

Wine Enthusiast, May 2013

A smooth, dense wine, ripe and polished. It brings out a modern view of Bordeaux, dark and concentrated, hinting at the new-wood aging. At the same time, the wine has a serious edge that promises proper aging.

Wine Spectator, March 2013

Nicely toasty, with a lovely broad stroke of mocha and ganache spread over the velvety core of plum sauce, blackberry coulis and steeped currant fruit. The long, polished finish keeps a tarry thread running along with the...

Decanter, January 2020

Pape Clement was still all about shoulders and pecs at this point; and even at 10 years old this is a serious beast. There is a lovely elegant uptick through the finish, offering a counterpoint to black chocolate...
