Vinous

The 2016 Pape Clément Blanc is quite soft, silky and open-knit, qualities that will make it easy to enjoy and drink young. White flowers, mint, lemon confit, melon and lightly honeyed notes fill out the wine s creamy, textured frame effortlessly. There is a lovely sense of brightness that runs through the Blanc that keeps the wine vibrant. Pape Clément Blanc is one of the better whites of the year.

The 2016 Pape Clément Blanc contains no Sauvignon Gris this year. It is slightly deeper in color compared to its peers, though the well-defined bouquet is perhaps not quite as complex, becoming slightly waxy with aeration. The palate is well balanced with, again, a waxy-textured entry. There is good weight in the mouth, and the slightly honeyed style reveals a twist of sour lemon on the finish. Drink over the next 12 years.

The 2016 Pape Clément Blanc has a lighter bouquet than the Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc, but it is still well defined and unfurls nicely in the glass to offer orange blossom, pineapple and light candle wax aromas. The palate is well balanced with a dab of ginger on the entry. There is a fine waxy texture here, hints of rhubarb and lemongrass furnishing a finish that just needs a little more persistence. Not bad at all. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.
