Coming from a tiny vineyard (3.7 hectares) and a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc again in 70% new barrels, it offers a thrilling bouquet of blue fruits, kirsch, violets, iron, and earth. With medium to full body, building tannins, remarkable purity, and flawless balance, it’s going to benefit from just short-term cellaring and cruise for two decades or more. Tasted twice.

Full-bodied, super rich and decadently fruited in the mouth, the structure of super ripe, plush tannins and bold freshness skillfully supports the voluptuous fruit, and it finishes with epic length. With alcohol running at around 15%, this is one for the hedonists! The tentative blend is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc with aging anticipated to be for 12 months in oak barriques, 70% new.- LPB

(94-95) This is very juicy and salty with dark-berry and walnut aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, tight and savory. White pepper at the end. Unique. Has beautiful drive and intensity. Exciting wine!

The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very good acidity, harmonious and cohesive with a silky smooth finish laced with blood orange. It’s the best Clos de Sarpe that I have tasted at this stage - much more restrained, yet ravishingly ripe, with more terroir expression. This bijou estate has been threatening to make a Saint-Émilion as good as this...now it has. -- Neal Martin
