Other Reviews....
The 2023 Soutard is likely to rival or even surpass the brilliant 2022. Offering up aromas of mulberries, raspberries and plums mingled with hints of violet, licorice and spice, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered, with a dense and seamless core of vibrant, perfumed fruit and a long, mineral finish. As restructured parcels return to production, Soutard is increasingly emerging as one of Saint-Émilion's finest estates.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Apr 27, 2024)

The 2023 Soutard makes its presence known right out of the gate. A blast of dark-fleshed fruit, licorice, gravel and chocolate give the 2023 its virile, backward personality. Hints of blood orange and pomegranate add vibrancy. This is an especially big vintage for Soutard, but it all works so well. Impressive. Drink 2030-2043.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

The concentration of fruit here is formidable, with blackberries, blueberries and hints of cedar and flowers. Full-bodied, yet with a refined and polished texture and a flavorful finish. Cool character to this.

Very young and unevolved both times I was able to taste it, the inky hued 2023 Château Soutard offers a ripe, powerful nose of mineral-laced red and blue fruits as well as ample scorched earth, violets, graphite, and floral nuances. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and textured, with a brilliant sense of minerality, it has the concentration and structure to warrant a solid 4-5 years of bottle age. The quality at this château continues to skyrocket.

Jeb Dunnuck

One of the oldest properties in St-Emilion, this 35ha vineyard is one of the most representative wines on the limestone plateau, and it does not disappoint in 2023, with pleasing plum and blackberry fruit and floral notes. Very expressive with spice on the palate, it displays depth and both red and dark fruit (reflecting a long harvest from 5 September to 6 October) with a balanced sense of concentration, salinity and tannic finesse, the low 3.48pH balancing the 14% alcohol. Ageing in 50% new oak will increase a sense of palate breadth. Drink 2026 - 2048.

Licorice, flowers, black cherries, and chocolate define the core of this wine. The wine is elegant, creamy, fresh, pure, and precise, The finish combines silky tannins, crushed stones, and fresh, red fruits. Drink from 2026-2047.
