I continue to love the wines from this estate, and while older vintages were powerful and rustic, that's not the case today. These wines always shine for their purity while still bringing lots of fruit and depth. The 2021 Château Clos de Sarpe is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc that hit 14% alcohol and is currently resting in 70% new French oak. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, and textured, especially in the vintage, it has terrific blue fruits, notes of iron, chalky mineral, and chocolate, ripe tannins, and a great mid-palate as well as finish. It's well worth seeking out, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it turn out to be one of the longer-lived wines in the vintage. ~92-94+ J. Dunnuck
The 2021 Clos de Sarpe is another terrific wine from an estate that has been on a roll of late. There is plenty of the size and richness Clos de Sarpe fans have come to expect, but these days the wine has a bit more freshness to play off all that extroverted intensity. Black cherry, tobacco, spice, and new leather fill out the layers. The finish is ample, creamy and so inviting. Tasted two times. ~92-94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
