Vinification

Manual filling into pneumatic pressing. Pressing of the entire berries with slow pressure under inert atmosphere. Running off into oak barrels by gravity flow. Settling and alcoholic fermentation in French oak barrels. Aging on fine lees, stirring out of the lees. Aging for 15 months in 55% new oak barrels, 35% one year-old wine and 10% egg-shaped concrete tanks.

Commentary
The attack is dense, with attractive substance. A full, dense wine. Elaborated with the same care, attention and methods as the grand vin, Le Clémentin from Pape Clément is one of those second wines that is practically a first wine, which has long held its own special status as reflected in its tasting scores.

Grape variety
48,5% Sémillon, 44,5% Sauvignon Blanc, 5,5% Sauvignon Gris, 1,5% Muscadelle
