97 THE WINEADVOCATE: The iconic 2012 Pape Clement is a candidate for near-perfection as well as one of the wines of the vintage. From proprietor Bernard Magrez, this is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. This extraordinary vineyard (a few miles to the west of Haut Brion and La Mission Haut Brion) has hit all the highlights of this vintage. Interestingly, the quality of the Pomerols and Graves wines in 2012 is closer to what one would consider a great vintage than the general image of 2012. This is truly great wine and not far off their magnificent 2005 and 2010. Full-bodied, with rich cassis, subtle burning embers and spice followed by velvety, well-integrated tannins, the wine is lush, expansive, savory and profound. This is a remarkable wine that could be drunk at a reasonably young age, but should cellar brilliantly for a quarter-century. Yields were modest at 37 hectoliters per hectare from this 132-acre estate. The alcohol level came in at 13.5%." 18 RENÈ GABRIEL´S BX TOTAL: "Fruchtiges, breites, üppiges Bouquet, Brombeeren, Röstaromen, Dörrfrüchte, Feigen, Zimt, Caramel. Opulenter, süsser, fruchtiger Gaumen mit cremiger Struktur, gutem Tannin, süsser Aromatik, langer, dichter Abgang. 18/20 2020 - 2035" - A.Kunz. 94 WINESPECTATOR: "Densely packed, with lots of dark steeped currant, fig and blackberry fruit, slowly melding with muscular licorice snap, bramble, singed bay and ganache notes. The long, dark, ganache-coated finish isn´t shy, but an enticing rusticity keeps this honest. A large-scaled wine that has really powered up since the barrel tasting. Best from 2018 through 2027. 12,500 cases made." 93 JAMES SUCKLING: "This is rich and decadent with lots of wet earth, tobacco, berries and hints of cedar. Full body, round and velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Better in 2018." 93 THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Earth, truffle, tobacco and smoke work perfectly with the lush, sweet, ripe blackberries and espresso character that this soft, plush wine serves up in spades. There is good freshness and character to the fruit from start to finish. The wine was produced from a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc." 91 FALSTAFF: "Dunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung, feine Anklänge von Erdbeerkonfit, zart nach Pflaumen und Brombeeren, Orangenzesten. Mittlerer Körper, rote Kirschen, präsente Tannine, würzige Nuancen, frischer Säurebogen, dunkle Mineralik, im Moment noch mit leichtem Bitterl im Finish." 90-92 WINE ENTHUSIAST: "90–92. Barrel sample. This is a ripe, rounded wine with weight and a full mouthfeel. It´s smooth on the palate with pear flavor accented with spice, ginger and soft acidity.""
