This is one of the oldest great growths in Bordeaux. The vineyards were first planted in the 13th century by Bertrand de Goth, the youngest son of a noble family from Bordeaux. He was elected Pope in 1305, during the reign of Philippe le Bel, and took the name of Clément V. Château Pape Clément belonged to the Archbishop of Bordeaux until the French Revolution. Wine has been made here continuously for 7 centuries.

Few great growths can claim seven centuries of history, or to have a Pope's passion as their origin. The estate takes its name from its first owner Clement V, elected under Philip the Fair in 1305. The current owner has pursued his work and created a first in Bordeaux by hand-desteming the entire harvest. With a commitment to excellence, the grapes are fed under gravity into small wooden casks adapted to the surface area of each section and then vinified with the greatest care from the vine through to bottling.
