As with many Bordeaux Châteaux, Château Clos de Sarpe is steeped with history. Set on the Right Bank, this St Emillion château is owned and run today by the Beyney family, the third generation to continue wine production and being family run, the estate is independent with traditional wine making values. The production here is very small with less than 4 hectares of biodynamic vineyards, planted with 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. In 1997 the estate began production of a second wine, Charles de Sarpe. Wines from here are powerful with high tannins, strong minerality and with complex and concentrated flavours.
