Truffle, smoke, licorice. espresso, flowers and ripe plums on the nose and palate are a turn-on.

A selection from 4 hectares of more limestone soils, the 2016 Château Sanctus is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc that spent 12 months in 40% new barrels. Sporting a more ruby/purple color as well as smoking good notes...   A selection from 4 hectares of more limestone soils, the 2016 Château Sanctus is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc that spent 12 months in 40% new barrels. Sporting a more ruby/purple color as well as smoking good notes of crème de cassis, toasted spice, classy oak, and violets, this beauty is more medium to full-bodied, has a seamless, focused texture, good concentration, and a great finish. Give it a few years.

A vibrant and attractive St.-Emilion with a red-fruit core that is framed in vibrant and crisp tannins. Fresh, long and upbeat flavors. Good depth here. Try from 2022.

The 2016 Sanctus is going to need a few years to soften, as the tannins are quite firm today. Even so, the 2016 shows terrific poise and energy.

Even so, the 2016 shows terrific poise and energy. Dark red cherry, mocha, espresso, dried flowers and licorice develop as this expressive, powerful wine starts to unwind in the glass. There is plenty to look forward to. -- Antonio Galloni

The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Sanctus has quite a broody, reticent nose to begin, slowly unfurling to reveal warm blackberries, black raspberries and Black Forest cake notions with hints of baked plums, dried herbs...   The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Sanctus has quite a broody, reticent nose to begin, slowly unfurling to reveal warm blackberries, black raspberries and Black Forest cake notions with hints of baked plums, dried herbs and cedar chest. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of black berries and earthy layers with a solid, grainy frame and a long, toasty finish. - LPB
