The vintage year of 2008 produced a delicious yield. Chateau Clos de Sarpe vineyard lies on homogeneous soils. The vines grow on clay-limestone single-slope, on a steep hillside facing south-east. Cherry red hued, the rich nose gives off red berries, oriental spices, gingerbread, and cashew notes. Fresh and mild, the palate is pleasant, with round, accessible tannins. The Saint-Emilion’s delightful finish reveals spicy notes with delicate wood.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet colored, the 2008 Clos de Sarpe has a nose that is wonderfully ripe and decadent with baked plums, kirsch and Black Forest cake notions over hints of star anise, incense, char-grilled meats and unsmoked cigar. Medium-bodied with incredible freshness and minerality coming through on the palate, it features wonderful red fruit accents and spicy sparks in the mouth with a long, mineral-laced finish.
