It’s medium-bodied with bright, tangy acidity. Creamy and focused with lingering dried-citrus and crushed-gravel notes. Long. Drink or hold.

(94–96) Barrel Sample. This is a perfumed wine, ripe with fragrant yellow fruits that are sliced with lemony acidity. It is a stylish, intense wine, while at the same time strongly textured and therefore sure to age well.

Lush in texture, with layers of sweet, citrus, yellow tropical fruit and flowers, the dab of honey and vanilla in the finish rounds everything out nicely. The wine was made from 57% Sauvignon Blanc, 39% Semillon and 4% Muscadelle. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/search-wine-tasting-notes/?szSearch=2018+Pape+Clement+

Long, focused finish is carried by superfine acidity that puts everything in perfect lock step. Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle. Best from 2022 through 2030. – JM

It was aged for around 14 months in 55% new and 45% second-fill French oak barrels. It races out of the gate with flamboyant scents of pineapple upside-down cake, lemon meringue pie and honey-drizzled peaches, plus suggestions of orange blossoms and yuzu peel. The medium to full-bodied palate has a decadent touch of oiliness to the texture with loads of spicy sparks to the tropical fruit layers, finishing long with a refreshing burst of zestiness. It's a richer expression, for sure, but it really works and it is seriously scrumptious. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Light gold-hued, with lots of pineapple, lemon curd, white flowers, and a touch of honeyed citrus and chalky minerality, the 2018 Château Pape Clement Blanc hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, solid depth of fruit, and a great finish. It doesn't match recent great vintages, but it's a balanced, layered, outstanding white to enjoy over the coming decade or so.

Honeysuckle and lemon curd, pretty tropical, rich and powerful, just lacking some lift on the finish although this has gourmet patisserie notes and is enjoyable.
