Chateau Le Pape
Pessac-Léognan - Chateau Le Pape
Château Le Pape is a Bordeaux wine from the appellation Pessac-Leognan.
The first thing Bob Wilmers did after purchasing Chateau Le Pape was to bring in Veronique Sanders to manage the estate. Veronique Sanders was already the director of Chateau Haut Bailly, so of course this was a natural fit.
The size of the vineyard has since been increased as well, going from 7 hectares to 9 hectares of vines starting with the 2018 vintage.
The average annual production for Chateau Le Pape is close to 3,500 cases per year. With the team headed by Veronique Sanders, and the spare no expense attitude of Bob Wilmers to produce the best wine possible, this is an estate to watch.
