External Reviews for Clos de Sarpe St-Emilion
RP: This wine exhibits enormous extraction, tannin, and richness.
Dark core surrounded by a bright riby rim. Very full lush front aromas. Bold florals followed by anise, cherry and cassis. Great depth and purity of fruit. Rich with bold yet balanced acidity and tannins. Very long finish. Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Clos de Sarpe 750ml
