Château Sansonnet is a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé estate lying just one kilometer (0.6 miles) east of Saint-Emilion town on the Saint-Emilion plateau. The estate was first named Grand Cru Classé (as opposed to a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru) in the original 1955 classification of Saint-Emilion.

Located at the very top of the Saint-Emilion’s plateau this small estate has joined the tight circle of Grands Crus Classés in 2012. Their wine are harmonious with ripe fruit flavours and fine tannins.

Tasting notes:
The nose is elegant, powerful, aromatic and quite intense. It reveals notes of blackberry and small berries associated with slight notes of truffle, red fruits, spices as well as a few slight notes of oak (in the background). The palate is fruity, mineral, well-balanced, relatively fat and offers a beautiful acid frame, a nice structure, suavity as well as a nice silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry and crushed strawberry associated with fine notes of cassis, a touch of raspberry, a discreet hint of blueberry as well as slight notes of toasted oak, cocoa and discreet hint of spices. Tannins are fine and elegant.
