2012 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe, Bordeaux.
Located next to the Saint-Emilion municipality, the Château Clos de Sarpe vineyard stretches over 4 hectares. This 2012 is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.
The wine is fruity, heady and rich. It carries a certain concentration and strength, followed by a very good length. The 2012 Château Clos de Sarpe offers a strong attack and a strawberry marked mid-palate. A long and excellent finish characterises this 2012 vintage.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Clos de Sarpe has a gorgeous black cherries, black raspberries and crème de cassis nose with touches of mocha, licorice, lavender and menthol. Very big, full-bodied, rich and minted in the mouth, it has a velvety texture and fantastic freshness, finishing long and multilayered.
