Alcohol/vol 15%
Attractive appearance: a deep cherry red colour with a purplish outline. A very expressive bouquet with notes of young red berry, oriental spices, black cutch and gingerbread. On the palate it is fresh, soft, pleasant and velvety with a fine and delicate texture. The tannins are fleshy and easy to drink. The finish is elegantly woody and spiced. A very nice wine to drink.

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+.
