Brand Chateau Sansonnet
Alcohol/vol 15%
Château Sansonnet is located at the very top of the Saint-Emilion plateau. Its exceptional soil consists of a thin layer of clay over limestone. The vineyard covers a single 7-hectare (17-acre) plot that surrounds the chateau. A dominant 85% proportion of Merlot is blended with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Its wine, which has great keeping potential, displays an intense ruby colour. When aired, it releases aromas of sour cherry and blackcurrant. Big on the attack, it evolves harmoniously on the palate towards an expression of fine tannins with a ripe fruit flavour.

Big, ripe and packed with tannins, this is a dense wine. The concentration is palpable, rich with black plum and berry fruits. This powerful wine with its great tannins and fruit needs to age. Drink from 2025.

A ripe, muscular, extracted style, with lots of warm fig, raspberry and blackberry confiture flavors wrestling with one another. Shows a brambly imprint on the fruit, and a grippy undertow of roasted apple wood adds to the heft. Features some cut, but this remains a touch shy on refinement in the end. Best from 2023 through 2035.

The 2015 Sansonnet is composed of 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc aged for 16 months in French oak, 80% new. Deep garnet-purple with a nose of crushed blackberries, plum preserves and beef drippings with touches of sautéed herbs and tapenade, the full-bodied palate has loads of concentration and energy with a firm, velvety frame and long finish.
