Le Château Pape Clément of Bordeaux
January 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Le Château Pape Clément in Pessac, located next to Château Haut-Brion, is named after its most famous owner: Pope Clement V. This is one of the oldest Grands Crus in all of the Bordeaux region. The vineyard was planted in the 13th century by Bertrand de Goth, who went on to become Pope Clement V. The estate prides itself on having produced wine on the same land for 7 centuries.
Rich in history, Château Pape Clément can also be proud of its beautiful park, architecture and arts, as the beautiful glasshouse built by Gustave Eiffel. In the 1980s, Bernard Magrez, an entrepreneur passionate about wine, took over the Château and built an unprecedented international reputation for the Grand Cru Classé. Ever since, Bernard Magrez has deployed every means possible to ensure that Château Pape Clément’s exceptional terroir continues to flourish through time and to express the finesse that has made its wines so famous.
Pape Clément is located in the Bordeaux suburb of Pessac and consists of a chai and 32 hectares of vineyards, planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (40%) and small amounts of Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle. The world of wine critics agree that Pape Clément produces one of the finest clarets in Pessac-Léognan.
