Thanks to exceptional climatic conditions, Chateau Clos de Sarpe created an extraordinarily balanced vintage between fruit, power and roundness.
From old vineyards, the 2015 Chateau Clos de Sarpe is composed of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. This 2015 vintage displays an extravagant intensity and deploys a flamboyant character, accompanied by unctuous and roasted fruits. On the nose, this Saint-Emilion has camphor and musky character, associated with candied dark berry notes. The Chateau Clos de Sarpe possesses structured yet elegant tannins with a round, fruity and mellow taste. This 2015 vintage is scrumptious and velvety.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Blended of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% French oak, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Clos de Sarpe is scented of tilled loam, truffles and dried Provence herbs with blueberry pie, blackberry preserves and licorice at the core and wafts of black olives and roses. Exuberant, full-bodied and concentrated yet wonderfully vibrant and expressive in the mouth, it possesses firm, ripe, grainy tannins and tons of freshness, finishing with epic length.
