To conclude the summer of 2017 a beautiful wine with a beautiful sunset. One of the classics, the Chateau Pape Clement 1989. This wine always knows exactly how to capture the moment perfectly. ##
After opening you could already smell the exquisit quality of the wine. A dark leathery scent with lots of earth and herbal tones as well. It needs a minute to breathe, but when it has the wine also develops sensual black fruits and hints of dates in the nose as well.
The mouthfeel is what you can expect from this astonishing Bordeaux. Smoky flavours combined with dried and black fruits. This all is completed with the long, lingering finish. It can undoubtedly compete with the lesser vintages of the best Bordeaux wines.
A brilliant Grand Cru, in our opinion the best Pessac-Leognac wines. This glass was perfect with the beautiful sunset, but also everything you can expect from this legend.
