Clos de Sarpe 2016 : a smooth and elegant red wine from Saint-Émilion Grand Cru

Château Clos de Sarpe is a red wine produced in the Saint-Émilion Grand Cru appellation. The vines are planted on clayey-limestone soils on the plateau of Saint-Émilion. The 2016 vintage of Château Clos de Sarpe blends 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. The wine is aged in oak barrels, of which 60% are new barrels and 40% barrels used for one previous wine.

At Château Clos de Sarpe, the 2016 vintage was marked by a complicated and uneven veraison. The heat of the summer led to hoping for saving showers to optimize the maturation of the berries. Even if volumes are lower than in 2015, quality is on the contrary exceptional.

At tasting, the château Clos de Sarpe 2016 presents a color of great intensity. The nose reveals aromas of extremely pure fruit. A supple and delicate wine with superbly integrated oak.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Clos de Sarpe (composed of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc) is a little closed to begin, opening out to reveal provocative Black Forest cake, Chinese five spice and cigar box notes with nuances of sandalwood, kirsch, rose hip tea and pencil shavings. Full-bodied, rich and opulent in the mouth, the palate is oh-so-seductive with a beautiful velvety texture and tons of freshness lifting the decadent fruit to a long spicy finish.
