Description

A supple and elegant Saint-Emilion Grand Cru red wine

The estate

Product of a family know-how and tradition maintained by three generations of winemakers, the wines of Château Clos de Sarpe are known for their very bold identity, which make them some of the best of their appellation. A Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion, Château Clos de Sarpe is in constant search for excellence with each new vintage.

The vineyard

Château Clos de Sarpe 2016 is a Saint-Emilion wine that stems from a certified organic 3.7-hectare vineyard, of which 3.35 are used for production. The vines are 65 years old on average and are planted on the appellation’s famous clay-limestone plateau.

The vintage

The unstable weather conditions at the beginning of the vegetative cycle resulted in a heterogeneous veraison period. The summer was hot, with some rainfall to help the grapes ripen. Despite lower yields than in 2015, this vintage showcases an utterly fine quality.

Vinification and ageing

Aged in barrels (60% new and 40% second-fill barrels).

The blend

Merlot (85%)

Cabernet Franc (15%).
