2014 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé, Bordeaux.
The Chateau Clos de Sarpe vineyard stretches on a surface area of 4 hectares, located in contiguity on the Saint-Emilion municipality. The 2014 Vintage wine is a delicious blend of 85% Merlot and 15 % Cabernet Franc.
This wine is characterised by its both dense and opaque purple-tinted red colour. The 2014 Chateau Clos de Sarpe offers a good freshness on the fruit and reveals spicy black fruit aromas, as well as liquorice and cherry notes on finish. The wine silky, strong and civilised tannins confer it a vinous character.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Clos de Sarpe is deep garnet-purple in color with a lovely cassis and warm black cherries nose with suggestions of cedar chest, tobacco, tapenade and bay leaves plus a waft of potpourri. Full-bodied, it delivers wonderfully pure red and black fruits with a solid line of fine-grained tannins and beautiful freshness, finishing long and earthy. Only 7,000 bottles were produced.
