Another beautiful wine in the making from this tiny estate, the 2019 Château Clos De Sarpe reveals a dense purple color as well as a killer bouquet of crème de cassis, black raspberries, classy oak, graphite, tobacco, and violets, picking up a bloody, iron-like character with time in the glass. This full-bodied, concentrated, beautifully balanced 2019 shows the purity and elegance of the vintage, and while it should be accessible in its youth, it's also going to have 25-30 years of prime drinking. - Jeb Dunnuck

Wonderful aromas of blackberries and wild mushrooms with bark, conifer and wet earth. There’s so much contrast here with lots of ripe, wild fruit and round tannins, following through to the finish. This is a very exotic, wild wine. Extravagance with bright acidity at the same time. The old-vine cabernet franc made this special. From organically grown grapes. 85% merlot and 15% cabernet franc. - James Suckling

Very deep purple-black colored, the 2019 Clos de Sarpe charges out of the gate with energetic notes of crushed blackberries, fresh black cherries and wild blueberries, plus hints of garrigue, wild mushrooms, fertile loam, chargrilled meats and woodsmoke. Full-bodied, the decadent black and blue fruits are fantastically offset by refreshing acidity, with a backbone of plush tannins and lingering exotic spice notions coming through on the finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

The 2019 Clos de Sarpe, a Saint-Émilion vineyard currently undergoing conversion to organic farming, offers ripe macerated black cherries, cassis and mint on the nose. The palate is slightly honeyed in texture, though this is counterbalanced by the acidity to avoid some of the more high-octane wines of the past. Yes, it is still on the opulent side, but there is a greater sense of control and finesse with commendable detail on the finish. Excellent. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media

Aged in 600l oak casks, reining in the oak impact while maintaining a charred, lightly grilled feel. This is a little lighter than some in the vintage, with clear austerity through the finish and relatively high acidity that remains on the mouthwatering side. Enjoyable. Drinking Window 2026 - 2040 - Jane Anson, Decanter
