Bernard Magrez has shown great determination in his ambition to elevate this property to superstar status. The 2005 Pape Clement has great structure and power with layers of cassis fruit. The tannins are still very present but with excellent balancing acidity this wine will develop well over the medium to long term. Second only to Haut-Brion in the appellation. Drink 2014 to 2025.

The origin of the chateau's name stems from the fact that the property was once owned by Pope Clément V at the end of the 13th century. It was so named as Pape Clement when Bertrand de Goth, archbishop of Bordeaux, was elected Pope. This makes Pape Clement one of the oldest of all the growths in Bordeaux. The estate has been owned by the Montagne family since 1939 and is now run by Bernard Magrez.
