Average Score 93.0

A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc and displaying a deep garnet-purple color, the 2017 Clos de Sarpe has a totally sexy, wonderfully spicy nose of star anise, cloves, Sichuan pepper and allspice over a core of blueberry preserves, chocolate-covered cherries and creme de cassis with hints of violets and licorice. Full-bodied, muscular and with a firm backbone of seriously ripe, velvety tannins, it has amazing freshness and a wonderfully layered, epically long finish. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com

One of the gems in the vintage is the 2017 Château Clos de Sarpe, which comes from a 3.7-hectare vineyard just northeast of the town of Saint-Emilion. This is thin clay soils over deep limestone and the 2017 is a rough blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, brought up in 60% new French oak. Gorgeous blue and black fruits, violets, graphite and awesome minerality flow to a medium to full-bodied, ripe, concentrated, yet pure and elegant Saint-Emilion that has everything. It’s going to be drinkable with just short-term cellaring and cruise in the cellar. Tasted twice.
A layered and pretty wine with plum, chocolate and cedar character. Medium body and firm tannins with a fresh and lively finish. Very solid and tight Linear and racy. From organically grown grapes.
The 2017 Clos de Sarpe was picked from 21 to 29 September at 29hl/ha, matured in 60% new oak and the remainder in one-year old barrels. According to Maylis Marcenat it was an easier vintage than 2016. The pH is 3.35, a little higher than in 2016, with 14.5° alcohol that is less. It has a very intense bouquet with macerated small black cherries, crème de cassis and crushed violet aromas, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well judged acidity, very harmonious with greater clarity towards the finish than previous vintages where I felt the Clos de Sarpe was pushed too much. This shows a more elegant style of winemaking and I appreciate the tension towards the finish, notes of allspice and clove lingering on the aftertaste.
