    The Intensity and Precision of a Magnificent Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

    Purchased by the Beyney family in 1923 and managed with passion and conviction by Jean-Guy Beyney since 1986, the Grand Cru Classe Château Clos de Sarpe displays all of the noble qualities of the great terroir of Saint-Emilion, on the Right Bank of Bordeaux.

    The 2017 vintage will be remembered at Chateau Clos de Sarpe, since this year marks the beginning of organic conversion on the vineyard.

    Acclaimed by critics once again, the Chateau Clos de Sarpe 2017 has become one of the impressive products of this atypical vintage known as a "winemaker’s vintage.” The wine confirms the estate’s place among the most beautiful references of the Saint-Emilion appellation. As the vineyard was spared by the episodes of frost that hit Bordeaux at the end of April, the vegetative cycle of the vine continued in a normal way, ensuring optimal maturity and excellent phenolic potential in the fruit, while maintaining a beautiful freshness.

    Made from a blend of Merlot (85%) and Cabernet Franc (15%), the Chateau Clos de Sarpe 2017 displays a sumptuous bouquet. With its rich aromas of black cherry liqueur, creme de cassis, delicate floral fragrances reminiscent of fresh violet, and fine toasted notes that attest to a careful aging in barrel, the nose presents a seductive complexity. On the palate, this great Saint-Emilion offers perfect harmony, revealing a superbly sculpted mouthfeel with soft and ripe tannins. The great aromatic purity extends into a beautifully long finish. A great and very elegant Saint-Emilion.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Clos de Sarpe is profoundly scented of preserved plums, blackberry pie and blueberry coulis with hints of dark chocolate, licorice, hoisin and fertile loam. Full-bodied, rich and decadently spicy in the mouth, it has a plush texture and a very long, spicy finish. The blend is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc and it was aged for 13 months in 60% new and 40% second fill French oak barrels.
