A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Clos de Sarpe wafts from the glass with aromas of sweet red berries, cherries, licorice, and petals. Full-bodied, broad, and layered, it's no blushing violet at 15% alcohol, yet this limestone terroir has delivered a remarkably low pH and concomitant freshness, and judicious extraction during a long but low-temperature maceration means that it remains suave and seamless. ~93-95 WA
Intense sliced berry aromas and flavors with minerals and stones. Very salty and intense. Medium to full body. Bright finish. Classy. Fine tannins. Minerally at the end. ~94-95 JS
