- Closure: Cork
The 2016 Sansonnet is a blend of 85% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in 80% new oak. It has a very intense, quite floral bouquet with an exotic touch that fortunately is nicely contained. The palate is medium-bodied with that Cabernet imparting a little rigidity to the tannin and a touch of graphite, but with very fine structure and focus, plenty of freshness on the finish. This may well surpass the 2016.
Neal Martin eRobertParker.com #230 (Apr 2017)
On the gutsier side, with dark plum and currant fruit as well as a mouthfilling brambly note, but it's all integrated and energetic, with definition to match the heft. For fans of the more powerful style.-J.M.
Dense and velvety-textured red with extremely attractive blackberry and stone character. Mineral and floral. This shows less extraction than in the past and delivers.
The 2016 Sansonnet is a flat-out stunner. Vivid, rich and beautifully delineated from the very first taste, the 2016 manages to remain translucent and light on its feet despite its considerable richness. Graphite, lavender, plum, violet and sweet spices give the wine its captivating, exotic bouquet. Sansonnet has long been produced in a heavily extracted style. The 2016 is the first vintage made with gentle extractions, which allows the fruit and aromatics to come through with striking purity. This wine is dazzling - it's as simple as that. Jean-Philippe Fort is the consultant. Tasted two times.
