Outer quote mark The 2021 Sansonnet is once again a stand out. Blackberry jam, crème de cassis, chocolate, new leather, licorice and espresso give this large-scaled Saint-Émilion tons of depth. As always, Sansonnet is an extrovert, but in 2021 it benefits from a kick of acidity that balances things out nicely. It was impressive both times I tasted it. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2022)

Outer quote mark Tasted on numerous occasions, the 2021 Château Sansonnet is another beauty, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it come in close to the 2017 in terms of quality. A blend of 91% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc, aging in 80% new oak, it has a fresh, lively, pretty, and incredibly pure style as well as lots of darker, cassis like fruits, subtle background oak, and notes of violets and graphite. It's unquestionably outstanding and will have two decades of longevity. Inner quote mark (6/2022) 

93-94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark There’s a level of brilliance to this, with blackberries and tar, as well as black licorice and spices. Medium body, integrated tannins and a fresh finish. All together. Inner quote mark (5/2022)
