I was able to taste the 2016 Château Soutard-Cadet on three different occasions and it showed consistently, always rating 95 or 96 points. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, made from 57% of the total production and aged in new oak, it offers gorgeous amounts of crème de cassis, graphite, and ample minerality as well as subtle hints of chocolate and background smoky oak. Ripe, full-bodied, and powerful on the palate, it stays perfectly balanced and elegant, with a great finish. It’s a beautiful wine readers should snatch up and it’s going to keep for two decades or more.

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Soutard-Cadet (composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc) offers up black plums, warm blackberries and smoked meats scents with hints of black soil, tobacco and black pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has fantastic concentration and depth, with a firm, grainy frame and long savory finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

There’s a sense of density and richness here from the outset with aromas of cedar and blackberries, as well as dark plums. The palate delivers handy tannin grain and a long, structured finish. Try from 2022.

Opulent, lush, dense and pure with fleshy textures, length and fat juicy fruits, this is long, powerful, fresh and refreshing, with a blast of licorice, sweet cherry liqueur and dark chocolate.

There is a lot of panache here. The palate is sweet and candied on the entry, with supple tannin, and almost confit in style, hints of brown sugar lacing the black cherry fruit on the finish. Quite a sensual Saint-Émilion, this, and it should give pleasure over the next 12 to 15 years. -- Neal Martin
