Pape Clement 2015 Released

May 11, 2016

Pape Clement 2015 has been released at €58.8 per bottle ex-negociant, up 18.1% on the 2014 release price of €49.8. It is being offered by the international trade for £625 ($902.36) per 12×75. This places it above the other four most recent vintages, but represents a significant discount on 2005, 2009 and 2010.

A number of critics have been positive in their reviews of Pape Clement 2015, though their scores are less generous than Robert Parker’s were for several back vintages. Neal Martin commented that the wine will “doubtless evolve into one of the best wines this estate has produced since the 14th century” and awarded it 97-98.

For buyers convinced that the wine is amongst the estate’s greatest, the 2015 might look appealing at around half the price of the 2005. Will it climb to the heights of 2005, 2009 and 2010? Others might look back to vintages such as 2012: it was among Parker’s top five wines of 2012 and has a market price of £571 ($824.35) per 12×75.
