For those of you with patience - the 2016 is also available and a perfect candidate for the cellar. With a bevy of relatively recent 94 - 98 point scores, the consensus at the table is that this one might be one of the greats of the last few decades.
" Among the whites of the vintage, the 2016 Château Pape Clément Blanc is one of the most concentrated, deep, and full-bodied whites out there, offering up a red wine-like structure to go with beautiful notes of white grapefruit, Meyer lemon, crushed rocks, and exotic flowers. A blend of 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 36% Sémillon, 9% Sauvignon Gris, and 5% Muscadelle, all from deep gravelly soils and brought up in 55% new French oak, this incredibly textured, pure, balanced white needs 3-4 years of bottle age and will keep for two decades or more." -98 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
