Château Clos de Sarpe 2008

SKU:1015/08 Bordeaux - Saint-Emilion - Red - 15° - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 95

The vintage year of 2008 produced a delicious yield. Chateau Clos de Sarpe vineyard lies on homogeneous soils. The vines grow on clay-limestone single-slope, on a steep hillside facing south-east. Cherry red hued, the rich nose gives off red berries, oriental spices, gingerbread, and cashew notes. Fresh and mild, the palate is pleasant, with round, accessible tannins. The Saint-Emilion’s delightful finish reveals spicy notes with delicate wood.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
A brilliant effort for this vintage, yields were a mere 10 hectoliters per hectare in 2008 and the result is only 8,000 bottles produced. Opulent, fleshy and full-bodied, this wine has reigned in the excruciatingly high level of tannins, but the 15% alcohol gives it loads of glycerin as well as a chewy mouthfeel. Inky/purple-colored and super-concentrated with relatively civilized tannins, this stunning 2008 should be accessible in 3-5 years (atypical for Clos de Sarpe) and drink well for 30+.
