The Wine Advocate – Neal MARTIN – Avril 2017
Score : 91-93/100.
“The 2016 Château Soutard-Cadet is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc aged entirely in new oak. It has a very intense kirsch and black cherry bouquet, the oak dominating the fruit a little at the moment although it should be absorbed with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, touches of blood orange filtering through the red berry fruit with a healthy dash of spice on the persistent finish. This is a strong follow-up to the excellent 2015”.

“A vivid and bright wine with lots of fruit and intensity. Medium to full body and blackberries and stones. A tiny-production wine. Pretty.”

VINOUS – Antonio GALLONI – Avril 2017
Score : 89-92/100.
“The 2016 Soutard-Cadet is deep and voluptuous in feel. Super-ripe dark fruit, chocolate, spice and leather are all pushed forward. This is an especially ripe, inky Saint-Émilion, but all the elements are nicely balanced. Readers should expect an unapologetically concentrated, flamboyant Saint-Émilion. The 2016 saw 28 days on the skins, with some lots fermented in 500-liter barrels. New oak is 100 percent. Jean-Philippe Fort is the consultant. Tasted two times.”

« Frais, très belle dynamique de fruits noirs. Juteux, soyeux, très frais, du volume et une précision dans le grain qui apporte de la structure. Une très belle bouteille ».

“Vif et dynamique avec des notes de fruits noirs. Juteux et soyeux en bouche, de la fraicheur également, une précision de grain qui enhardit la structure a ne pas manquer!”

Jeff LEVE – The Wine Cellar Insider – Avril 2017
Score : 91-93/100.
“Opulent, lush, dense and purewith fleshy texture, length and fat juicy fruits, this long, powerful, fresh and refreshing, with a blast of licorice, sweet cherry liqueur and dark chocolate.”

vvWine – Adrian Van Velsen – Avril 2017
Score : 91/100.
« Tiefe, angenehme Nase, viele Veilchen, Weihnachtsgewürze, dunkle Beeren, sehr verspielt, spannend. Weicher Gaumen, ungemein saftig die Frucht, Kirschen, rote und dunkle Beeren, markante Gerbstoffe und eine knackige Saüre stützen die Frucht. Würzig und wieder mit Veilchen im Abgang. Sehr schöner Wein, elegant und mit viel Finesse viniziert, Bravo. 2021-2034. »
