There’s a level of brilliance to this, with blackberries and tar, as well as black licorice and spices. Medium body, integrated tannins and a fresh finish. All together. - James Suckling.

Succulent and supple, this is precise and stands out. The fruit has a pristine, almost clean quality to it, lightly framed but good layers of red berry fruit, cooling touches of mocha and cassis as well as crushed stone minerality. A nice presentation of the vintage and terroir - all well worked and well presented. It's not so round but has a deliciously delicate body giving depth of flavour and lightness of touch in terms of structure. Not long but elegant and totally classy. Charming and just easy to like. Tasted three times. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter.

Tasted on numerous occasions, the 2021 Château Sansonnet is another beauty, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it come in close to the 2017 in terms of quality. A blend of 91% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc, aging in 80% new oak, it has a fresh, lively, pretty, and incredibly pure style as well as lots of darker, cassis like fruits, subtle background oak, and notes of violets and graphite. It's unquestionably outstanding and will have two decades of longevity. - Jeb Dunnuck.

From a vineyard opposite Trottevieille, the 2021 Sansonnet opens in the glass with aromas of berries, plums, licorice and burning embers. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and rather muscular, with good depth at the core, tangy acids and powdery tannins that assert themselves on the finish, it's 91% Merlot, the balance Cabernet Franc. - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate.

Glass-staining damson in colour, rare in the vintage, this is poised and finessed, well-handled with a silky texture and concentration to the black cherry fruits and cigar box smoke through the mid palate. The fresh acidites come in on the finish, giving an abrupt end, but lots of potential here. Good stuff from Marie Lefévère at this 7ha clay-limestone estate. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux.

The 2021 Sansonnet has a well-defined bouquet of dark cherries, bilberry and cassis scents, all perfumed and nicely focused. The medium-bodied, compact palate offers sappy black fruit, moderate depth and a chewy finish. It does not quite deliver the finesse or purity of recent vintages, but it should cohere during élevage. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media.
