Château Pape Clément - "History & Wine"

Château Pape Clément is located just outside the city of Bordeaux and is the oldest planted vineyard in the region (planted in 1300). Like most old vineyards in France, its origins trace back to the Church. The chateau gets its name from the archbishop Bertrand de Goth... whose papal name was Clement V.

Everything at Château Pape Clément is still done the old fashioned way... no fancy steel vats, de-stemming machines, or computerized systems. It's all done by hand and is controlled by experienced wine makers. Each year the wine is blended and crafted differently depending on the harvest. It's remarkable to taste the differences of each season.

Château Pape Clément has some of the tastiest (and expensive) wines I've ever tried!
