Winemaker Notes

Chateau Clos de Sarpe produced genuine Saint-Emilion wine, natural, straightforward, sincere, concentrated, tannic, complete and solid - an expression of the unerring truth of the land and the flexible truth of time. In the cellars, long and fiercely natural vinification results in pure authenticity.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A massive, concentrated claret that behaves like something from the 19th century, the 2008 Clos de Sarpe, made under the supervision of Michel Rolland's top lieutenant, Jean-Philippe Fort, was cropped at a nearly commercial insanity level of 12 hectoliters per hectare. The natural alcohol of 15% must eclipse even the ripest vintages of the past. As I have said before, this is an uncompromising, massive wine made for those with longevity genes, or for stashing away for our children's children. About 500 cases are produced of this 85% Merlot / 15% Cabernet Franc blend. Almost painfully concentrated, with an opaque purple color as well as an extraordinary nose of incense, spring flowers, black fruits, graphite, and new oak, this wine displays a full-bodied, multilayered mouthfeel, high but sweet tannin, and a remarkably long finish that lasts over a minute. Despite the late harvest and late malolactic, the 2008 is more accessible, with sweeter tannin than the 2005 was at a similar age. Purchasers will require extraordinary patience, but what a wine! It is one of the most remarkable offerings from what is one of the four finest vintages for St.-Emilion in the last two decades.

This property was initially owned by Baron du Foussat de Bogeron, then sold to Jean Beyney in 1923; whose son took over in 1950. Today this family estate is run by Jean-Guy Beyney and his wife Christine, the third generation to make wine there with passion, focus and expertise, concerned with getting the best from this noble soil in the purest of traditions.

Chateau Clos de Sarpe is also an independent estate, people-oriented, generous and altruistic, founded on respect for the land and a permanent quest for perfection for the pleasure of all who love quality wines.
