Tasting Notes and Scores

94+

Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Sansonnet (composed of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a little youthfully mute, revealing suggestions of crushed black plums, baked cherries and blackberries with nuances of fallen leaves, black olives, lavender and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is charged with energy, giving mouth-coating red and black fruits with a firm, grainy frame, finishing long and lively. LPB

Neal Martin

The 2016 Sansonnet has a pure bouquet of small dark cherries, fig and blueberry, beautifully defined and seamlessly integrated with the new oak. The medium-bodied palate is smooth and sensual, offering supple tannin and layers of slightly toasted black fruit, plus a bit of white pepper toward the persistent finish. This should mature with panache in bottle. 14.5% alcohol

James Suckling

The blueberry and blackberry aromas are very impressive and lifted right out of the glass. Full-bodied, very tight and defined with beautiful berries and focus. Long and vivid. Traditional style with precision and verve. Drink in 2022.

Antonio Galloni

An exotic, heady wine, the 2016 Sansonnet is a total stunner. Crème de cassis, lavender, bittersweet chocolate, menthol, licorice, graphite and sweet spice saturate the palate in an explosive, stunningly beautiful Saint-Émilion that balances concentration and vibrancy with impeccable class. Put simply, the 2016 Sansonnet is a total pleasure bomb. Don't miss it. Tasted three times.

Jeb Dunnuck

An estate that has been firing on all cylinders recently, the Merlot-dominated 2016 Château Sansonnet sports a saturated ruby color as well as a beautiful bouquet of macerated black cherries, blackcurrants, smoked earth, spice, and tobacco. This ripe, sexy, full-bodied beauty has terrific overall balance, a layered texture, no hard edges, and a beautiful finish. It's a gem in the vintage and is well worth a case purchase. The blend is 90% Merlot and 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, all brought up in 80% new French oak. Don’t miss this brilliant wine. - jebdunnuck.com, February 2019

Decanter

A clay-over-limestone estate, owned by Marie Lefévère, which has produced a wine with excellent balance of flavour, freshness and power in 2016. The enjoyable dark fruits, bitter chocolate, clean lines and generosity are not overdone - it's intense without a doubt, but has settled down during barrel ageing in 80% new oak. It was bottled this July. 32hl/ha yield. - decanter.com, Jane Anson, October 2018
