Château Pape Clément Pessac-Léognan 2010
Black, no place for a purple border. Burnt, tar-shaped black cherry and blackberry nose. Grilled meat. Still very masculine, but showing no brittleness and no roughness, but quite balanced. A very positive surprise in the mouth for Pape Clement: The wine that is always extracted is given this vintage-specific plus of acid (and the acid is very high!) And the good alcohol, in my opinion, for the first time a really suitable balance and turns this wine into one really great wine. The immense black fruit masses go perfectly with the acid, tannins and alcohol. It will be a very fine, beautiful, drinkable wine. As another opponent of winemaking on Pape Clement, I now say about 2010: A very big success!
