Full-bodied, concentrated, dense and intense, the wine expresses a strong mineral component along with its core of ripe, round, rich, deep, gushing dark red fruits .You also encounter floral, thyme and spice overtones along with all crushed rocks in the fruit filled finish. The wine blends 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. This could be the finest vintage produced here yet. Give this 10-12 years in the cellar and it will probably score even higher.

It opens with powerful notes of blackberry pie, plum preserves and blueberry compote, leading to suggestions of Indian spices, cardamom, rose oil and ground cloves. The full-bodied palate is richly fruited and densely laden with exotic spice and earthy layers, framed by exquisitely ripe, velvety tannins and tons of freshness, finishing very long and fragrant. Stunning! With alcohol running at around 15%, this is one for the hedonists. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Rich and unctuous in the glass, yet with terrific freshness, the 2018 dazzles from start to finish. There is plenty of the flamboyance Clos de Sarpe fans expect, and yet the 2018 is so measured and vibrant. Inky red/purplish fruit, lavender, rose petal and blood orange meld into the sumptuous finish. A slight move away from the very pushed style of years past has paid off big time. The 2018 is simply magnificent. -- Antonio Galloni

Based on 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc brought up 70% new oak, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, silky tannins, terrific purity, and outstanding length. This is a much more refined, elegant style of wine from this address that will be accessible with just 4-5 years in the cellar and keep for 20-30 years or more.
