Château Pape Clément
Château Pape Clément derives its name from Bertrand de Goth, who became Pope Clément V in 1305. After having been donated to the church, the château changed ownership several times until the arrival of Bernard Magrez in 1985. New winemaking facilities were built, the barrel cellar restored, and in 1986 a second wine, Le Clémentin, was introduced to improve the existing selection.
Inside the Château, the reception rooms radiate elegance with superb wood panelling, antique furniture, and a private art and music collection, which includes a harp and a harpsichord. The 5 richly decorated suites, with herringbone parquet floors and handmade fabrics, take the names of Bernard Magrez’s vineyards: Clos des Songes, Mon Seul Rêve, Tempérance, Sérénité, and Égrégore.
Waited on by your dedicated chef and butler, you can savor private fine dining in the elegant dining room, under chandeliers, which diffuse light on the sparkling Hermès silverware and Baccarat glassware. When it comes to wine, you can choose between the flight of three Bernard Magrez wines, or a recommended bottle "à la carte".
