Article code 639737597837
The purity of cabernet sauvignon fruit is what impresses here. Subtle and energetic plum and currant aromas follow through to a gorgeously harmonized palate of wonderful fruit and an ultra-long finish. Current bush and light earth adds to the complexity.
The iconic 2012 Pape Clement is a candidate for near-perfection as well as one of the wines of the vintage. From proprietor Bernard Magrez, this is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc.
The 2000 vintage allows Christian Mouiex's Bordeaux-style of winemaking to shine through. This wine explodes in the mid-palate, with essences of spices and leather. The long, lingering finish displays a harmony of tobacco, coffee and fruit.
Deep colour holds well to a ruby-red rim. Aromas are initially closed with notes of cedar & meat dominating the fruit. On the palate coffee & cedar notes overlay blackcurrant & bitter liquorice flavours.
