The second wine, the 2009 Le Clementin du Pape Clement, is made from a similar blend. It is more loosely put together with sweet tannin and lots of red and black fruits intermixed with smoked herbs, charcoal and hints of lead pencil shavings and herbs. Lush, round and medium-bodied, it is ideal for drinking over the next decade. This 13th century vineyard situated in the suburbs of Pessac is owned by one of Bordeaux’s most interesting visionaries, Bernard Magrez. He has done a remarkable job in turning around this once moribund property that made a bevy of undrinkable wines into one of the superstars of Bordeaux.
