"One of the real surprises of the vintage, the 2014 Sansonnet has turned out beautifully. Specifically, the firm tannins and notable oakiness have integrated very nicely. A rush of black cherry, plum, chocolate and leather give the wine its bombastic, flamboyant personality. Large and ample to its core, the 2014 is seriously opulent and extracted, and yet all the elements are fused together beautifully. The 2014 will appeal most to readers who enjoy the bolder side of Saint-Émilion. I tasted the 2014 twice and it was equally impressive on both occasions. Consulting winemaker Jean-Philippe Fort has done a terrific job. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc." -Antonio Galloni, Feb 2017

"In his note on the 2013, Robert Parker remarked that readers should keep a sharp eye out for this upcoming property and the Château Sansonnet 2014 shows exactly why. It is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc cropped at 35 hectoliter per hectare and matured in 70% new French oak. It has a decadent nose but unlike some of its more hubristic peers, here it is more complex and defined, nicely interwoven with the new oak, and offers some irresistible floral scents with time. The palate is full-bodied with fleshy black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, a pleasant saline touch with plenty of tension and freshness on the finish. It is a modern-style of Saint Emilion and unequivocally one of the better examples of the genre." - Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com #218, Apr 2015
