Serious and refined with dried lemon, pineapple, green apple, almond, gun flint and some aniseed. Bright and tight. Medium to full body. Fresh and alluring. Wait and see. - James Suckling

The 2021 Château Pape Clément Blanc is certainly in the running for the white of the vintage. Based on 70% Sauvignon and 30% Semillon brought up in just 18% new oak, it has bright, racy acidity that's beautifully balanced by a rock-solid core of fruit and mid-palate density. Giving up notes of pineapple, tart peach, white chocolate, and ample minerality, it will warrant 2-4 years of bottle age, but it's impressive anyway you look at it. - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2021 Pape Clément Blanc deftly marries freshness with textural richness. Apricot, mint, apple tart and tangerine peel build beautifully. Creamy and resonant in the glass, with terrific verve, the Blanc is impeccable today. Moreover, it is wonderfully delicious. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Excellent clarity and precision, you can feel this has been well worked with a vibrancy and tension running through the apple, apricot and fleshy peach fruit with some creamy patisserie edges. I love the lick of sherbet that lingers on the tongue and the persisting zestines. Fully flavoured and confident with some lemon drop and crushed stone salty minerality on the finish. A blend of 72% Sauvignon Blanc, 22% Sémillon, 5% Sauvignon Gris and 1% Muscadelle. Tasted twice. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

The 2021 Pape Clément Blanc shows the tension and cut that this vintage could bring to dry white Bordeaux. Exhibiting aromas of gooseberries, nectarine, confit citrus and pastry cream, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy but incisive, with a textural attack and a bright, saline finish. It's a blend of 72% Sauvignon Blanc, only 22% Sémillon, 5% Sauvignon Gris and 1% Muscadelle. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

The 2021 Pape Clement blanc is made from 97% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Semillon. Vibrant notions of white peaches, fresh pineapple, and pink grapefruit jump from the nose with hints of sea spray, honeysuckle, and dill seed. Light-bodied, the palate has wonderful tension and loads of tightly wound citrus and tropical layers, finishing long and minerally. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

Bottled the previous January, the 2021 Pape-Clément Blanc is a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon. This has a brisk and lively bouquet with Golden Delicious, persimmon and white peach scents, well-defined and notably focused. The palate is well-balanced with a fresh entry and a pleasant "bite" of acidity, revealing notes of Anjou pear, red apple and a dash of spice toward the cohesive finish. The growing season advantaged the whites over the reds and, although I am not sure about the longevity of this white, it will definitely give pleasure over the next decade. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media
