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.

***** Excellent 
Friendly aged wine !
Pre #WBIS 19 th January 2013, Thanks to Marc Roisin that bring us to the - Volle Gas - restaurant in Brussels ! Friendly dinner with wine bloggers and friends from all over the world ! Marc manage to get the bottle standing up in the middle of the restaurant for free ! To much temptation, he opens it ! Finally a great experience for the palate, maybe not the best vintage, and for sure badly noted by Mr Parker but this wine went up through time very well and developed nicely ! Great " Back to the Future" wine pairing perfectly a beef tartare ! A top moment shared on a good table ! #bordeaux #aged #parker #beef #winelover #friendly
