Clos Sarpe Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2006

Saint Emilion, Bordeaux, France

750ml / 14% ABV

Grape Varieties: 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

Beautifully fashioned tannins, very good fruit purity and a lot of freshness, sweetness and flesh. A fine, fresh finish, solid and very fruity. All wrapped in a very dark colour.

Clos de Sarpe is a very long lived wine. On average, 15-20 years of age in the cellar is what the wine needs before starting to show its best. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. Clos de Sarpe is best enjoyed in the first 15-35 years of life.

Young vintages can be decanted for about 2-4 hours. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Wine Pairings

Clos de Sarpe is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes.

Clos de Sarpe is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
