Wine Advocate 93-94

The 2021 Pape Clément Blanc shows the tension and cut that this vintage could bring to dry white Bordeaux. Exhibiting aromas of gooseberries, nectarine, confit citrus and pastry cream, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy but incisive, with a textural attack and a bright, saline finish. It's a blend of 72% Sauvignon Blanc, only 22% Sémillon, 5% Sauvignon Gris and 1% Muscadelle. William Kelley

Jancis Robinson 17

70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Sémillon. Cask sample. Bottle not so ridiculously heavy as the red. Grapefruit-peel sensation on the nose. Mouth-filling, fully ripe fruit. Long. Very much more of a success than the 2021 red from this estate. Sleek and lively. With an appetisingly dry finish. Drink 2023 - 2030. James Lawther MW

James Suckling 96-97

Serious and refined with dried lemon, pineapple, green apple, almond, gun flint and some aniseed. Bright and tight. Medium to full body. Fresh and alluring. Wait and see.
