Ch Soutard 2020
Grand Cru Classé
€ 49.61/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
Vinous – 91-93/100
The 2020 Soutard-Cadet is more muted on the nose compared to the Sansonnet, demanding more coaxing from the glass, and eventually offering black cherries and blueberry plus touches of iodine. The well-balanced palate is medium-bodied with a touch of sour cherry on the entry, quite a structured finish and a pinch of sea salt on the aftertaste. Give this 3–4 years in bottle – it’s a long runner.
The Wine Advocate – 93-95+/100
Deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Soutard opens with the most gorgeous perfume of rose petals, lavender, kirsch and raspberry leaves, followed by a core of preserved plums and ripe blackberries, plus emerging suggestions of clove oil and mandarin peel. The medium to full-bodied palate is softly textured and irresistibly seductive, featuring layer upon layer of perfumed red and black fruits and fantastic tension, finishing long, lifted and satisfyingly spicy.
