1997 Château Pape Clément

Community Tasting Note


Wednesday, April 14, 2010 - Started off a bit rough with tail ends of plummy fruit hanging on a rough, floppy structure. Pulled together in the glass and even more after several hours in the bottle. Lovely pencil lead, tobacco and lined-out fruit. Nice depth and structure. Medium finish with persistent mineral/graphite and earth. Ended up a really pretty bottle of wine that way exceeded the vintage.
