Wine Spectator:

"Dark chocolate and blackberry aromas follow through to a full body, with lots of juicy fruit, soft tannins and a long aftertaste of coffee and berry. Best after 2012. 1,850 cases made. - JS" -92 Points - Wine Spectator

ESTATE:
"Chateau Sansonnet is located at the east of Saint Emilion, on the highest point of the plateau, neighbouring great classified wines. Sansonnet belonged in the 19th century to the Duke Decazes, Prime Minister of Louis XVIII. In 1892 the property was acquired by Prosper Robin, who built the existing château. The Robin family owned Sansonnet for 4 generations until the d’Aulan family (former owners of Piper-Heidsieck Champagne) took it over in 1999."

"The vineyards of Chateau Sansonnet lie on an exceptional terroir which is composed of an argilo-limestone on a rocky subsoil which is only a spade's depth in some places. Sansonnet's wines are a deep crimson purple with notes of raspberries, minerals, cherries, smoke, blackcurrants and coffee. They are medium to full bodied wines which are complex, intense and well balanced. The wine expresses the rocky sub soil when young but deepens and becomes smoother with age."

"Merlot and Cabernet complement each other beautifully to give elegant, attractive and classy wines.The 7 hectares vineyard and the wine cellars have been restored. Forgotten for a moment, Sansonnet takes again today its legitimate place among the high-class wines of Saint-Emilion." -Importer

Stephen Tanzer of the International Wine Cellar scored this wine 86-89 points.
