Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 90-93
A blend of 63% Sauvignon Blanc, 35% Sémillon and 2% Muscadelle, the 2022 Pape Clément Blanc exhibits aromas of spices, spring flowers, lemon, peach and hints of jasmine and grapefruit. The palate is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and satiny, with an oaky frame. The finish is long, persistent and elegantly spicy.
Vinous – Neil Martin – 92-94/100
The 2022 Pape Clément Blanc was cropped at 35hL/ha between 28 August
and 2 September and matured in under 20% new oak. It is very fragrant on
the nose, with lemon verbena, white peach and honeysuckle scents. Really
fine definition and sense of focus. The palate is well balanced, a little
steelier and more linear than recent vintages with plenty of tension on the
saline finish. This should age well in bottle.
