Quite floral, this shows a wealth of very ripe plums and black cherries. The tannins are powerful with a thread of spicy cinnamon-infused oak. Rippling with power. Yet ever so refined and beautiful. Try around 2025.

Possessing a wealth of fruit and sweet, yet building tannin, this thick, beautifully layered wine is an awesome effort that will keep for 15+ years. The lieu-dit Sansonnet lies just east of the village of Saint-Emilion and covers 6.96 hectares. It was purchased by Marie and Christophe Lefévère in 2009 and this 2015 is 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc, aged 16 months in 80% new oak.

Full-bodied, unctuous and voluptuous, it is one of the best among the more overt, flamboyant wines being made in Saint-Émilion today. The plum, black cherry, mocha, espresso, new leather and spice flavors are all given an extra kick of textural richness by the decision to harvest late and the overall approach to extraction. Readers should expect a full-throttle, intense Saint-Émilion. For the first time in recent memory, Sansonnet seems to have fully ripe tannins, always a challenge to achieve in this cool site. The blend is 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasted three times.

The wine is luscious, rich and fat. The fruits are perfectly ripe, sweet and fresh with salty tannins, giving the wine that desired sense of minerality.

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. 2,500 cases made. — JM

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. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

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. ROGER VOSS

He was absolutely right, and four years on this is still a lovely, if extremely young wine. Intense, concentrated, dark chocolate and damson notes.
