Château Pape Clément
Located in Pessac, Château Pape Clément is one of the oldest wineries of Bordeaux and recently celebrated its 700th harvested vintage. The Château gets its name from Pope Clement V, its most famous owner. Wines range from Cabernet Sauvignon to Merlot, but there are also small quantities of white wine grapes, such as Sauvignon Blanc. This vineyard was formally a pioneering estate: it was one of the first in France to plant vines in rows, as opposed to the usual plots being scattered around the estates. Château Pape Clément is now one of the best known wines of France.
