Château Haut-Sarpe 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fresh, fruity and offers concentration, elegance as well as complexity. It reveals notes of boysenberry, crushed cassis and small notes of wild strawberry, wild raspberry associated with hints of flowers (lily, cornflower…), a very discreet hint of blueberry as well as discreet touches of vanilla, toasted and an imperceptible hint of Cuben pepper (in the background). The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, elegant and offers a beautiful suavity, fat, straightness, a good freshness as well as a very fine tension and a good definition. On the palate this wine expresses notes of boysenberry, fresh raspberry and cassis associated with small notes of fresh/juicy red berries as well as fine touches of toasted oak. Tannins are fine and slightly dry. There is a subtle hint of caramelized almond and vanilla (give gourmandize).
