Chateau Pape Clement Blanc 2008 - Case of 6 Bottles (75cl)
Tasted ex-château and single blind in Southwold. The white Pape-Clement never convinced out of barrel, but it appears to have really blossomed in bottle. It has a very attractive nose with scents of lemon peel, almond, orange peel and white peach that are well defined and very fresh. The palate is very well balanced with a subtle note of ginger on the entry; very well integrated oak with a lovely caressing, waxy finish with hints of lemon curd and dried pineapple. Tasted January 2012.
