My feeling is that Pape Clement is overpriced and has been for some
time. I had the 1976, 1978, 1982 and was not impressed so I didn't buy
any more of it.-


Those vintages weren't any good for Pape Clement. In fact they were
unremitting crap.


�They only really revived in the mid to late 1980s.


Which is why I never bought anymore. Hard to buy a wine that had such
bad memories.


The 76 and 78 PC have more VA than a Musar. The '82 is a bit better,
but still quite an underachiever for the vintage.
However, I've loved 'the '61 and the '64. And like the '86, '90, '96 a
lot .
