93/100 : “A savory and rich red with ripe tannins and sweet fruit. Dark chocolate and walnuts, too. Medium to full-bodied, extremely long and beautiful. Lovely finish. Needs at least three or four years to soften.”
James SUCKLING – JamesSuckling.com – février 2017.

92/100 : “Rouge rubis aux reflets violets. Bouquet élégant, filigrane et complexe. Le nez se révèle lentement et dévoile des notes de cerise, myrtille et cassis. L’attaque est fruitée, soyeuse et rafraîchissante. Le vin a du corps et révèle un très bel équilibre entre les tannins, parfaitement intégrés et la structure. Un vin élégant, doté de tannins légèrement granuleux et en synthèse avec la structure. Sansonnet confirme sa trajectoire vers le haut. Bravo!” – 2019-2034.
Yves BECK – yvesbeck.vin – février 2017.

91/100 : “A seriously dark, hefty style, featuring a large core of fig and blackberry paste riveted with ganache and espresso notes. Shows ample cut, with a wave of tobacco leaf coming through, offering a glimpse of purity on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2030.”
James MOLESWORTH – WINESPECTATOR – février 2017.

94/100:  « One of the real surprises of the vintage, the 2014 Sansonnet has turned out beautifully. Specifically, the firm tannins and notable oakiness have integrated very nicely. A rush of black cherry, plum, chocolate and leather give the wine its bombastic, flamboyant personality. Large and ample to its core, the 2014 is seriously opulent and extracted, and yet all the elements are fused together beautifully. The 2014 will appeal most to readers who enjoy the bolder side of Saint-Émilion. I tasted the 2014 twice and it was equally impressive on both occasions. Consulting winemaker Jean-Philippe Fort has done a terrific job. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. »Antonio Galloni-VINOUS-février 2017
