2005 Sansonnet, St-Emilion

SKU #1040010 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark chocolate and blackberry aromas follow through to a full body, with lots of juicy fruit, soft tannins and a long aftertaste of coffee and berry. Inner quote mark (3/2008)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This property has been on a hot streak of late. The 2005 is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc from the limestone plateau of St.-Emilion. Offering raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with licorice and chalky notes, the wine is full-bodied, with great texture, purity and depth. This is a serious, elegant yet, at the same time, powerful wine. Drink it over the next 10-15+ years. A sleeper of the vintage. 91+ (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium ruby. High-toned aromas of black cherry, dark chocolate and licorice. Lush and sweet but quite primary, with firm acids giving shape to the black cherry and brambly dark berry flavors. Just a tad hard today. Finishes with firm tannins and lingering notes of licorice and black fruits. Inner quote mark (6/2006)

K&L Notes

Needs a little cellar time for the firm tannins to soften; a beautiful wine.

A rich wine with gobs of dark red fruit, layers of oak, and loads of depth. Get some.
