1997 Château Pape Clément

Community Tasting Note


89 Points

Thursday, June 30, 2011 - Garnet red, started with smoky/peppery nose that developed more ripe strawberry, red rose, ripe vine tomato and molasses with time in the glass. Light body, with fine tannins and good balance. Surprisingly long length. Considering this is an off vintage, it gave considerable pleasure, and was a relative bargain. At its peak. Excellent, 89.
