Le Benjamin de Sansonnet Grand Cru St Emilion 2016
The second wine of this exemplary Grand Cru Classe St Emilion is a terrific offering and often is more impressive than many first wines. Merlot dominant it has plenty of plum fruit with blackcurrant behind and a juicy yet savoury palate. Good for drinking now as the tannins are ripe but good to continue for a decade or so.
