Tasting Notes and Scores

92-94

Wine Advocate

The 2021 Clos de Sarpe is showing beautifully, offering up aromas of wild berries and plums mingled with subtle hints of petals, loamy soil, spices and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and velvety, with powdery tannins, lively acids and a penetrating finish, it shows considerable promise. Maylis Marcenat reported that the vineyard was spared by both frost and mildew but fell victim to poor pollination at flowering, delivering low yields. In the winery, she opted for a long maceration at a very low temperature of merely 23 degrees Celsius for a judicious extraction, and that approach appears to have paid off handsomely.

Neal Martin

The 2021 Clos de Sarpe, picked October 7–17, offers raspberry coulis, wild strawberry and figgy scents on the nose, just a little confit-like in style (possibly due to a bit of SO2). The well-defined palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, fine acidity and a minerally, precise finish. Good potential, but you may need to be patient.

James Suckling

A juicy and fruit red with lots of plum, berry and some cherry aromas and flavors. Medium body with round, creamy tannins, yet it remains elegant and bright.

Antonio Galloni

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.
