    (Chateau Pape-Clément Pessac-Léognan) On this tasting there is little to be found on the nose here; there is ripe fruit, but to me this seems to be closing down. The palate is rather restrained, dense but well focused, and the oak seems to have integrated well here. There is a very serious tone to it, with well defined substance and texture, and a good covering over the ripe core of tannins. There is subtle fruit complexity here, and overall this is very appealing. It could, in time, be great.

    (Chateau Pape-Clément Pessac-Léognan) This is exotic, perfumed, deeply fruited, with an attractive pickling spices complexity. Fine texture on the palate, with lots of texture and a lovely extract. The tannins are ripe, rather svelte and peppery, and come with fresh acidity. Tannic finish. This is set up for good development in the cellar.
