Reviews for 2011 Sansonnet Bordeaux Blend

WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Ripe but not big with nicely focused raspberry and currant fruit intertwined with red licorice and apple wood notes. Nice polish on the finish.-J.M.

Lovely balance of fine tannins that are polished and pretty with ripe fruit. Full and concentrated yet in harmony. Well done for the vintage.

Sansonnet has been on a hot streak over the last few years, producing strong efforts in both 2009 and 2010.

Sansonnet has been on a hot streak over the last few years, producing strong efforts in both 2009 and 2010. Not surprisingly, they have hit pay dirt again with their 2011, a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. This dense purple-colored, impressively endowed wine reveals plenty of blue fruits along with a confiture of black cherries, medium to full body, sweet tannin and a long finish. Drink this serious sleeper of the vintage now and over the next 15+ years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Planted to 85% merlot and 15% cabernet franc on 7 hectares located northeast of the town of St. Emilion on the highest point of the limestone clay plateau across from Trottevieille. Average vine age is 35 years planted in thin clay and limestone. Opaque and purple-black in color. The closed nose reveals hints of minerals and blackberry jam. The medium weight palate highlights ripe pure and round black fruits with some underlying firm structural components. The ripe fruit is also evident on the lengthy finish thanks to some integrated acids. The fine tannins while not hard or firm contribute structure. Stephane Derenoncourt consults. Tasted three times.
