Wine Photographer & Writer

Château Pape Clément is a grand cru wine estate in the Pessac-Léognan appellation situated in the Graves viticultural area. Known to be one of the oldest Bordeaux Grands Crus, the estate’s vineyard was established by Bertrand de Goth, who in 1305 became Pope Clément V, the name which was subsequently given to the Château. The first harvest there took place in 1252, laying the foundations for an outstanding cultural heritage. In 1980 Bernard Magrez acquired the estate.

​Based on a soil with exceptional components, the 60 hectares of this vineyard are devoted to the meeting of passion and work. Each plot, vine and grape is carefully tended according to vine-growing tenets developed over centuries. This terroir stretches over three plots surrounding the Château and benefits from both ancestral savoir-faire and cutting-edge technology.

Château Pape Clément is part of the very small circle of châteaux certified as being of High Environmental Value. This HVE 3 certification is, according to the French state, the highest environmental distinction.
