Château Pape Clément possess a particularly fascinating history dating back as far as the 14th Century. The Château derives its name from Pope Clement V, formerly Cardinal Bertrand de Goth, famous in his time for working in the vineyards himself and utilising the very latest agricultural processes of the day. The Pope's holy influence is still felt through the vines today, with a string of quite divine vintages over the past two decades. This is a Pessac-Léognan estate that has been a trailblazing producer for over 700 years. He took real interest in this Pessac Leognan estate, adopting the most advanced winemaking techniques the 14th century had to offer. Still cutting-edge, in 2013 they introduced drones, controlled via smartphone, to inspect their parcels.The estate is now under the ownership of Bernard Magrez.
