    (Chateau Pape-Clément Pessac-Léognan) Lots of flashy oak in this young wine, with aromas of spiced fruits and honey signifying this. It is soft, supple and well rounded, with a firm midpalate and lots of ripe grip. It has a very plump, diffuse character but there is acidity in it, and woody tannins, it just doesn't seem well integrated at present. There is substance to it though and I suspect it will come good with time.

    (Chateau Pape-Clément Pessac-Léognan) Sweet and ripe fruit on the nose here, showing piles of new oak, much more than the wine was carrying when I tasted it in April 2007. It has a tight composition, but there is also apparent flesh and grip through the midpalate. Lots of good acidity. This is very stylish, but it will need plenty of time for all that oak to integrate. Really very good.

    (Chateau Pape-Clément Pessac-Léognan) Beautifully pure and open fruit on the palate, fine definition, full and rounded, not quite creamy. A firm grip underneath, a plush fruit texture, very good acidity. It has freshness, but doesn't leap out of the glass. Nevertheless it has a very nice composition and I think this has very fine potential.
