Château Pape Clement

Located in Pessac-Léognan, Château Pape Clément one of the oldest estates in Bordeaux, with records of vineyard plantings going back to 1300. Today the vineyards are planted predominately with Cabernet Sauvignon (approximately 60%) and Merlot. In 1939 vigneron Paul Montagne took over the château and with the help of the brilliant oenologist Émile Peynaud by 1949 the results of their efforts were starting to show. Following his father’s death, Léo Montagne took over the property with Bernard Magrez (owner of Château La Tour Carne) and they enrolled the help of wine winemaker Michel Rolland as a consultant. Today, Château Pape Clément produces one of the best red wines in Bordeaux. The château also produces a celebrated white wine, Château Pape Clément Blanc which is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle.
