Tasting Notes
A deep purple wine.  It reveals nicely blackcurrant fruit aromas. The wine is rich and complex, very fruity on the palate with rip, firm tannins and refreshing minerality. There is very good lengh and balance.

hâteau Sansonnet is situated on the highest point of the exceptional clay limestone plateau of Saint Emilion. The vineyard is 7 hectares (17acres) in one unique holding that adjacent to classified great growth vineyards.

The planted grape variety proportion is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.The distinction was a reward for constant, hard and close work carried out on the vines with continuous concern for quality.

At the vineyard
Important qualitative work has been carried out in the vineyard : Complantation, pulling up, trellising, grassing over. When necessary, leaf thinning and green harvesting help to control maturity and yields. The grapes are hand harvested in small cartons at optimum maturity.

They are meticulously sorted out (two sorting tables including one vibrating and a Tribaie® ). Integral berries are fed by gravity in the vats. There is limited chemical intervention in our vineyards, only at the most critical moments in the growing season. We use also no weed killer.
