2020 Château Sansonnet En Primeur

There has also been a great buzz around Château Sansonnet in Saint-Émilion in the last few years.  Run by Marie-Bénédicte Lefévère, whose family bought the estate in 2009, previous vintages of Sansonnet have been appealing blockbusters which have won over consumers and critics.  Recent vintages have edged more towards elegance, but this is still very much a wine to open with friends and see beaming smiles across their faces.  Offered at £336 per dozen, several critics place it in the 94-96 point range.

Producer Profile

Château Sansonnet, Saint-Émilion

Sansonnet is a Grand Cru Classé estate in Saint-Émilion.  Owned since 2009 by the Lefevre family, the estate has been rapidly improving.  The 7 hectares of vines are at the top of the Saint-Émilion plateau, on thin clay over limestone.  The vineyard is planted to 85% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon.  The estate is run by Marie-Bénédicte Lefévère.

Incidentally, 'sansonnet' translates from French as 'starling', though we are not quite sure how the estate got its name.
