Château Pape Clément

The Château Pape Clément is one of the oldest properties in the Bordeaux vineyard, seven centuries old and born of the passion of a pope. It was at the end of the 13th century that Bertrand de Goth received from his brother Bréaud de Goth, as a present for his nomination as archbishop of Bordeaux, a property located in Pessac planted with vines. Bertrand de Goth was elected Pope in 1305 and took the name of Clement V. He will thus rename his Domaine Pope Clement.

Grand Cru Classé in red in the Graves classification in 1953, Domaine has belonged since 1983 to the Bordeaux businessman Bernard Magrez. With determination and passion, he has led Pape Clément into the sphere of the greatest wines of Bordeaux. Respect for the environment, the use of drones to follow the evolution of the vineyard, tailor-made vinification, from the vineyard to the cellar nothing is left to chance so that the potential of this exceptional terroir is expressed.

The Château Pape Clément is based on a 63-hectare vineyard implanted on an exceptional Pyrenean gravel hillock.
