L'Âme de Pape Clément Red 2022

The Soul of Pope Clement Rouge

AOC Graves

Located in the heart of the Graves appellation, on the left bank of the Garonne, the terroir of Ame de Pape
Clément terroir is ideally suited to vine-growing. Its deep gravelly soil
resting on a layer of clay and limestone, contributes to the remarkable ripening of the grapes
by releasing the heat stored during the day at night. Vineyard also benefits from a protective
microclimate created by the surrounding waterways and perfect exposure of the vines.

Winegrowing singularities

Wine Singularities


  • Mechanical leaf-thinning
  • Manual harvesting
  • Terra Vitis, HVE3 (high environmental value level 3) and EMS certification
  • The harvest is preceded by a rigorous sorting of the grapes on a table.
  • Stainless steel tanks
  • Traditional vinification in temperature-controlled vats
  • Vatting time 25 to 28 days
  • Aged for 14 months, half in barrels
  • Winters in Bordeaux are generally mild, with average temperatures around 5 to 10 degrees Celsius (41 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit). Minimum temperatures rarely fall below zero, which limits the risk of severe frost.
  • Spring in Bordeaux is cool and often rainy. Temperatures begin to rise gradually from March onwards, favoring the budburst of the vines.
  • Summers in Bordeaux are hot and sunny, with average daytime temperatures often reaching 25 to 30 degrees Celsius (77 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit). Sunny days and cool nights help maintain grape acidity, which is essential for wine quality.
  • Autumns are generally mild and moderate in Bordeaux. Temperatures begin to drop gradually from September onwards, with cool nights contributing to the slow, steady ripening of the grapes.
