“2015 will be one of the excellent vintages however hardly to compare to 2009 and 2010 or 2005. In 2015 the region played a major role, terroir was the key to success. For red wines, the limestone plateau in Saint-Emilion performed extremely well as there was water available during the hot summer days and drainage proved to be ideal during rainy August. Therefore the best wines of Saint-Emilion come from limestone soils. The sandy parts of the appellation produced a quite heterogeneous result. In Pomerol it looked the same with very successful wines from the central plateau and more heterogeneous qualities from the areas around. In Fronsac it was not only the terroir which proved important, the vintners decision had a major impact. Pessac-Léognan did extremely well in this vintage with a homogenous quality. The Médoc was divided. The southern part, mainly Margaux and the southern part of Saint-Julien have seen less rain and produced more powerful wines. The northern part of the Médoc, especially Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe have produced a very fine and elegant style with excellent persistence. On the good terroirs, the seeds were ripe which results in very ripe tannins with a silky or velvety expression. In addition the cooler conditions of autumn provoked a very pure and fresh fruit. For the dry white wines the quality depends very much on the origin again. Due to the hot and dry growing season, a lot of white wines show very mild, almost soft acidity but also some phenolic hints in the aftertaste. A few dry white wines are standing out, having preserved freshness and acidity. The sweet wines are remarkably good, very rich in character and the best of them have a crisp acidity balancing the opulent sugar. The tasting conditions were rather good, however the weather was quite mixed affecting the presentation of the wines. The wines were tasted blind where possible and open. The final decision on the rating is based on both tasting types.”

 Rob Bellini / Sommelier, Pro (United Kingdom)  tasted  1 wines  from  Château Clos du Sarpe . In a tasting of  42 wines 

“2011 tasting - Lafleur is perhaps the wine of the vintage:
Bottle is naturally in a excellent condition and has by the neck level. Colour is ruby red and deep. On the nose it is wide, intense, refined, fresh, opulent and round. The taste is full, round, fragrant, firm, vigor, with silky tannins, full-bodied, with balanced and well-structured structure. On the palate it is layered and has floral, leather, new-oak, smoky, spice, truffles, vanilla and blackcurrant flavours. The finish is long, extensive, flavorful, pure and spicy. This wine is almost as good as 2009 and 2010. Perfectly stored bottles are still very worthy and will last well for another 20-30 years and decant at least 3h before tasting. 98 points”

 Jeff Leve, Wine Writer (United States)  tasted  1 wines  from  Château Clos du Sarpe . In a tasting of  15 wines 

“2011 is the debut vintage for the Decosters, the owners of Fleur Cardinale and Secret de Cardinale. With the name Croix Cardinale, are you sensing a pattern here? Truffle, chocolate, licorice and jammy black berries are found in the perfume. Rich, polished, sexy and long, the plush finish is filled with chocolate-covered plums. From a blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine reached 15% alcohol and will be aged in 100% new oak. 91-93 Pts”

“Cheval Blanc 2013 /"A vintners vintage" as Pierre Lurton explains. Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black centre. Elegant nose with excellent fruit, dark berries and hints of blackcurrants. Fine toasted flavours and hints of minerality. On the palate well structured with a rather discreet start but a persistant length. Very elegant character.
94 points”
