THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "The newly renamed vineyard, which still remains a bit confusing to me is deeply colored in the glass. The wine is plush, concentrated, opulent, and layered with dark plums, chocolate, licorice, and dark pit fruits. The finish, with its creamy textures, freshness and length is simply great. The wine comes from vines on the slopes of their vineyard and is produced blending 80% Merlot with 20% Cabernet Franc. Drink from 2027-2045."
JAMES SUCKLING: "Attractive cocoa-dusted dark berries here with spices and wet stones. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a lingering finish. Notes of walnuts at the end. Bright."
JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2022 Château Sanctus comes from the upper plateau and is slightly more Cabernet Franc-driven, (65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc). Plums, red and black cherries, chalky minerality, and some graphite nuances all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, vibrant, lively wine."
