1986 Clos de Sarpe (Ex Chateau 2022)

Clos de Sarpe

flagBordeaux / France

Tasting the 1986 Ch. Clos de Sarpe at 36 years old the wine is still full of life and a fascinating insight into traditional Bordeaux of that era – with no oak barriques and little destemming. The tiny 3.68-hectare plot’s unique soils consistently produce a wine with very low pH levels, something that brings amazing acidity and freshness to the wine as well as a great ageing ability. A deep garnet colour, the 1wine took 30 minutes to open up, slowly revealing subtle aromas of cassis, blackcurrant and tobacco. The palate offers great textural depth and concentration with notes of liquorice, spice and dark cherries. Softly textured and full-bodied with a wonderfully long finish, this Clos de Sarpe is drinking perfectly now and should continue to do so for the next 10 years or more.
