The 2010 Clos de Sarpe is deep garnet-purple in color with a profound, very youthful nose of blackcurrant cordial, warm plums and blueberry pie with hints of chocolate box, roses, star anise and cigar box plus a beautifully fragrant waft of lilacs. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and oh-so-seductive, it has a firm frame of grainy tannins and explosive freshness to lend an electric charge through the mid-palate and epically long finish. Amazing wine.

The 2010 Clos de Sarpe is a modern-style Saint-Émilion that retains freshness and purity. Copious blueberry and wilted violets burst from the nose, a light smear of vanilla following suit. Whilst the new oak is conspicuous, it feels enmeshed with the fruit. The palate is full-bodied with a velvety, cashmere texture, a rounded and intense wine that is kept on balance by a fine thread of acidity. Where it could have become blowsy on the finish, it successfully manages to retain composure and disguise the alcohol. It probably needs another couple of years in bottle, but it shows what can be achieved at this diminutive Saint-Émilion property. Tasted in Saint-Émilion. (NM)
