About Chateau Pape Clément is one of Bordeaux’s oldest Grands Crus, originally owned in the 13th Century, by Bertrand de Got, the Archbishop of Bordeaux, who became Pope Clement V in 1305, for whom the chateau was then named.Pape Clément has seen its quality advance dramatically in the last two decades, since the acquisition of the estate by Bernard Magrez who brought in specialist wine consultant Michel Rolland in 1993.  The real turning point was reached with the 1998 vintage, since when scores have remained consistently high. The 2010 vintage achieved the perfect 100 point Parker score and firmly established wine investor focus on Chateau Pape Clément.
