Château Le Pape 2014

Jane Anson

Bought in January 2012 by Robert Wilmers of Château Haut-Bailly, this property lies just 900m from Haut-Bailly and has a similar layout of old vines in a single block around the château, but has 75% Merlot in the blend, unlike its sister property’s high Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 has a beautiful smoky edge, with the oak adding a caramel wafter, cappucino and charred cherry layer to the bright berry fruit, medium weight, fine tannins, a little short on the finish. There are 5ha in production right now out of nine potential, with replanting currently underway.
