Château Haut-Sarpe  2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

Château Haut-Sarpe  2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, aromatic and elegant. It reveals slight notes of wild strawberry and cassis associated with slight woody hints, fresh raspberry, licorice as well as a hint of Cuben pepper. The palate is fruity, mineral, slightly fleshy and offers a nice freshness, a slight unctuosity, a nice suavity as well as tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh blackberry and slight notes of fresh black cherry, wild strawberry associated with a discreet hint of licorice stick, violet as well as an imperceptible hint of dark chocolate. Tannins are well-built. Good length. There is a slight hint of coffee on the persistence as well as a very discreet hint of salted butter caramel on the finish/persistence.
