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 :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Clos de Sarpe gives up gorgeous blackberry, black cherries and warm plums notes with sparks of redcurrants and anise with a potpourri, tilled soil and bay leaves undercurrent. Full-bodied and packed with spicy energy in the mouth, it has a firm yet plush texture and fantastic freshness, finishing on a lingering earthy note.
