It is the prerogative of free and creative spirits: you never find them where you expect them. On the occasion of the 770th harvest of Château Pape Clément, in Pessac Léognan, many expected from Bernard Magrez celebrations with the history of the property, a new testimony of recognition to Bertrand de Goth, Archbishop of Bordeaux, one of the first owners of the estate, then called Vignoble de la Mothe. The latter ; appointed Pope in 1305, he took the name of Clement V. The fief still bears his name today.
Well no. Instead, the Grand Cru Classé looks to the future, moving to the web3 and selling 1,252 NFTs that will function like many membership cards. Why 1252? Simply because it is the date of the castle’s first harvest. What are the benefits of joining this club?

It should be noted in passing that Château Pape-Clément makes special use of NFT. In the world of wine, the “Non Fungible Token” technology is generally linked to the fight against counterfeiting. It is also a solution for owners who wish to follow the subsequent resales of their bottles by obtaining a commission for each new transaction. But the Bernard Magrez company takes another step aside and gives these digital assets a more cultural and community dimension. We did not expect less.
