The 2021 Sansonnet is once again a stand-out. Blackberry jam, creme de cassis, chocolate, new leather, licorice, and espresso give these large-scaled Saint-Emilion tons of depth. As always, Sansonnet is an extrovert, but in 2021 it benefits from a kick of acidity that balances things out nicely. It was impressive both times I tasted it. ~93-95 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
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. ~93-94 James Suckling
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. ~92-95 J. Dunnuck
