2021 Château Haut-Sarpe  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 88
Black raspberries and flowers on the nose bring you to a medium-bodied, mineral driven, strict wine made in an old-school. classic style that is going to appeal to some tasters more than others. Drink from 2024-2035. 87-89

2020 Château Haut-Sarpe  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91
Dark in color and round in texture, the wine offers a core of chocolate, licorice, oak and plums on the nose and palate. The mid-palate and finish deliver a ripe, sweet fruit and chocolate coated endnote. 90-92 Pts

2019 Château Haut-Sarpe  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92
Medium-bodied, bright, vibrant, fresh and silky with a liberal dose of crushed rocks and stones to come along with the wines sweet, lively, polished, red fruits and salty tannins. Showing much better in the bottle than it did in barrel, this should age and evolve quite nicely. Give it a year or two in the bottle to age and it is going to be even better. Drink from 2024-2037.

2018 Château Haut-Sarpe  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90
Much better in bottle than in barrel the wine is round, lush, showy and sweet, with loads of ripe fruits, crushed rocks and a judicious hit of oak. Give this a few years to continue filling out and soften and it should be a better wine.

Flashy, fleshy and juicy, this is the most concentrated wine I have ever tasted from the estate. There is a strong eucalyptus note to the dark red fruits as well as a jammy, fatness in the mouth. This is a good wine to drink young, for all its up-front, ripe juiciness. 87-89 Pts

Spicy red fruits, crisp on the palate with licorice and red plums, this medium bodied wine is on the classic, tart side. Subsequent vintages have shown improvement.

Chateau Haut-Sarpe has kicked up their game by bringing in Hubert de Bouard to consult. Showing a lot of color for the estate, this wine is fresh, medium bodied and stony with ripe, red fruits in the finish.
