" Emerging from the talents of Marie Lefévère (of Château Sansonnet and Château Moulin du Cadet), the 2018 Château Soutard-Cadet is dense purple color is followed by a powerful, concentrated Saint-Emilion with stunning cassis and black raspberry fruits, notes of spice, candied violets, camphor, and chocolate, full-bodied richness, beautiful elegance married to serious power, and a blockbuster of a finish. This is another thrill-a-minute Saint-Emilion that readers should snatch up."
