2019 Pape Clement Blanc, Pessac Leognan, Bordeaux

9.25/10 stars

The wine was blended with roughly 50% Semillon and 50% Sauvignon Blanc, a common grape varietal for Bordeaux wines. However, what’s uncommon was the style, please allow me to talk about it via my drinking experience. Bordeaux blanc used to be heavy and thick, and even oily. Pape Clement Blanc was no difference in the past vintages, but I realized they have shifted their style. What has changed? They probably realized burgundy style is more appealing to drinkers, thus they have aligned their style towards white burgundy. Gone were the days where you get a rough and rugged Bordeaux, Pape Clement was exhibiting a stylish, refined elegance that was not found in the past vintages. Put aside all the tedious, repetitive and cryptic tasting notes, uncork a few bottles of past vintages of Pape Clement Blanc, drink it along with this 2019 vintage, and you’ll probably note what I meant. I personally welcome the changes, thanks to Bernard Magrez for taking the bold move!
