Performing much better from bottle than in barrel two years ago, Soutard’s 2012 is probably one of the strongest wines they’ve made in many a decade. A blend of 63% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Malbec, the Soutard terroir’s tendency for rough, astringent tannins has been tamed brilliantly by their current team. The result is a medium to full-bodied wine that is opaque ruby/purple in color, with loads of plum, black and red currants, earth, spice, and a layered mouthfeel. This wine represents the complete package – lots of ripe fruit, moderate tannin, and a long, pure aftertaste. Drink it over the next 15 or more years. | eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Soutard has more vigor on the nose compared to 2012 Fonplégade and 2012 Larmande, black cherries and raspberry preserve, nicely integrated oak here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity, oaky in style at the moment, but there is sufficient fruit to support that—meaning that the finish has commendable harmony and sustain in the mouth. I agree with Robert Parker—this is a fine Saint Emilion from Soutard. Tasted January 2016. Oct 2016, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2019-2032
