Week commencing 25th July

Pessac-Léognan , Château Pape Clément, Grand Cru Classé, Bordeaux, France,  1988

£40 per 125ml glass. Current wine list price - £300.00.

Château Pape Clément is one of the oldest Grands Crus of Bordeaux. His vineyard - the first harvests took place in 1252 - was implemented in the XIIth century by Bertrand de Goth, younger of a noble family from Bordeaux region.

Archbishop of Bordeaux, Bertrand de Got became Pope in 1305 under the name of Clement V. This is where the Château inherited its name from and its wine became an icon.

The Cabernet Sauvignon for the Graves area (taking its name from its gravelly soil) tend to be softer and more elegant than their Médoc counterparts. The wine is kept for 18 months in new French oak but retain a great finesse.

1988 was a very good vintage and is drinking wonderfully now. The wine develops a great complexity of black truffle, cedar wood and tobacco underlined by some soft dark fruits and a touch of cherry macerated in alcohol.

The palate is soft and velvety, very feminine, with elegance and depth. The finish is long lasting and silky.

This beautiful and succulent wine will greatly pair with our Lamb course
