Other Reviews....
The 2022 Sansonnet is a full-throttle, opulent Saint-Émilion. Blackberry jam, mocha, gravel, incense, licorice and bittersweet chocolate are all dialed up. Sansonnet is always a potent wine. In 2022, everything is dialed up to the maximum. This is not a shy wine. That much is obvious. Tasted three times. Drink 2028-2047.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

Really pure fruit here with blackberries and boysenberries. Some spice like white pepper. Medium-bodied with tight and fine tannins, and a fresh and bright finish. Terrific potential. 95% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 2% cabernet sauvignon.

James Suckling

Winemaker Marie Lefévère made a bevy of brilliant wines in 2022, and her 2022 Château Sansonnet is up there with the finest vintages to date. A blend of 92% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, it has a pure, well-oaked, yet balanced and textured style carrying beautiful red and black fruits as well as some floral, spicy background nuances. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, the tannins are ripe and nicely integrated, the balance is spot-on, and it has a great finish. I was able to taste this on multiple occasions and it always impressed.

Plush, chewy, seriously tannic and concentrated but kept lively by the high acidity, cooling blueberry touches and herbal minty finish. Still tense and coiled, not yet widening but shows promise with polish and finesse narrowing the power into one funnel from start to finish. Sleek but serious. Yield of 34hl/ha. Ageing 16 months, 70% new French oak barrels 225l and 300l, 30% second fill 45hl wooden vats. Harvest young Merlot vines 12 September, 13-22 Merlot, 28 September for Cabernets. Same owners as Ch Moulin du Cadet, Soutard-Cadet and Harmonie. Rolland & Associés consultants. Drink 2025 - 2044.

Georgina Hindle - Decanter

Deep, dark, rich, lush, full-bodied, and intense, this hedonistically-styled wine is packed with layers of black cherries, blackberries, chocolate, spice, vanilla, chocolate, black raspberries and plums. The wine coats your palate with waves of dark, pit fruits, espresso and chocolate from start to finish. Opulent in character, the wine should be a treat to drink with just a bit age and provide hedonistic pleasure for up to 2 decades after that. The wine blends 95% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink from 2026-2045.
