The 2021 Château Soutard-Cadet is another gem from the Lefévère family that plays with the best out there. Based on 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot, it sports a dense purple hue as well as juicy, vibrant notes of cassis, blackberries, scorched earth, chocolate, and background oak. It's always a touch more refined and elegant compared to the Sansonnet, and the 2021 is medium to full-bodied, has terrific tannins, and a great finish. Harvested from the 5th to the 14th of October, it was vinified in a combination of tank and 500-liter barrels, and the élevage will span 16 months in 70% new barrels. Tasted twice.
