Really pure fruit here with blackberries and boysenberries. Some spice like white pepper. Medium-bodied with tight and fine tannins, and a fresh and bright finish. Terrific potential. 95% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 2% cabernet sauvignon. - James Suckling

Winemaker Marie Lefévère made a bevy of brilliant wines in 2022, and her 2022 Château Sansonnet is up there with the finest vintages to date. A blend of 92% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, it has a pure, well-oaked, yet balanced and textured style carrying beautiful red and black fruits as well as some floral, spicy background nuances. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, the tannins are ripe and nicely integrated, the balance is spot-on, and it has a great finish. I was able to taste this on multiple occasions and it always impressed. - Jed Dunnuck

A blend of 92% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, with a pH of 3.43, the 2022 Sansonnet has a deep purple-black color. Notes of plum preserves, blackberry pie, and kirsch hop from the glass, with vibrant accents of redcurrants, iron ore, and dried mint. The full-bodied palate is lively and intense, with energetic black and red berry layers and a fine-grained texture, finishing long and minerally. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent

Intense concentrated slate and crushed rocks against slabs of bitter chocolate and cassis, black cherry and creamy raspberry puree. This is intense, musuclar and structured, in the spirit of the vintage, beautifully balanced by curls of woodsmoke, crushed rose petals and slate. Lovely. Famile Lefevère. 70% new oak. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Plush, chewy, seriously tannic and concentrated but kept lively by the high acidity, cooling blueberry touches and herbal minty finish. Still tense and coiled, not yet widening but shows promise with polish and finesse narrowing the power into one funnel from start to finish. Sleek but serious. Yield of 34hl/ha. Ageing 16 months, 70% new French oak barrels 225l and 300l, 30% second fill 45hl wooden vats. Harvest young Merlot vines 12 September, 13-22 Merlot, 28 September for Cabernets. Same owners as Ch Moulin du Cadet, Soutard-Cadet and Harmonie. Rolland & Associés consultants. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

The 2022 Sansonnet is a full-throttle, opulent Saint-Émilion. Blackberry jam, mocha, gravel, incense, licorice and bittersweet chocolate are all dialed up. Sansonnet is always a potent wine. In 2022, everything is dialed up to the maximum. This is not a shy wine. That much is obvious. Tasted three times. - Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media
