2022 Château Clos de Sarpe, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
GBP 306 per case of 6x75cl IB
The savoir-faire of three generations of wine-making tradition has given Château Clos de Sarpe’s wines a very distinctive identity that is the privilege of the very best. Grown on soil whose nobility has been endorsed by time, the small vineyard is treated like a garden and worked with continuous respect for nature. This approach is continued in the winery, where natural vinification is slow, governed by time alone.
"A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Clos de Sarpe wafts from the glass with aromas of sweet red berries, cherries, licorice and petals. Full-bodied, broad and layered, it's no blushing violet at 15% alcohol; yet this limestone terroir has delivered a remarkably low pH and concomitant freshness, and judicious extraction during a long but low-temperature maceration means that it remains suave and seamless."
93-95 points William Kelley, Wine Advocate April 2023
