Reviews for 2010 Sansonnet Bordeaux Blend

JS 93
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2011
This is a little overdone with a Porty asphalt character but the palate is thick velvety and impressive. Much better than 2009.

Ripe rounded and lush with lots of fruitcake melted licorice blueberry compote and linzer torte notes already woven seamlessly together. Toast firms up just a touch on the finish but there's plenty of stuffing. -J.M.

With new owners and a new consultant Stephane Derenoncourt the estate fashioned an 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc blend from yields of just 19 hectoliters per hectare that's filled with fresh spice minerals jammy plums... With new owners and a new consultant Stephane Derenoncourt the estate fashioned an 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc blend from yields of just 19 hectoliters per hectare that's filled with fresh spice minerals jammy plums and anise. Plush and round this rich wine ends with soft textures and licorice coated jammy maraschino cherries.

2010: This will be a property to watch since it changed owners in 2009 and consultant Stephane Derenoncourt and more recently Jean-Philippe Fort Michel Rolland's assistant have been trying to resurrect this property... 2010: This will be a property to watch since it changed owners in 2009 and consultant Stephane Derenoncourt and more recently Jean-Philippe Fort Michel Rolland's assistant have been trying to resurrect this property. Yields in 2010 were minuscule (19 hectoliters per hectare) and the wine hit 15% natural alcohol from a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Opaque ruby/purple very up-front forward and quite delicious I could have drunk it had it not been tasted on two different occasions in the morning. Exhibiting beautiful black currant fruit along with kirsch licorice and some background spicy oak the wine is opulent medium to full-bodied and definitely a sleeper of the vintage.
