"Château Soleil was acknowledged as the first wine in its appellation by the INAO during the 50th anniversary of the AOC Puisseguin-Saint-Émilion. Château Soleil is made from vines over thirty years old which grow on clay-limestone soil. They have not only the power and structure of the finest wines of Saint-Emilion, but also the balance and finesse." —winemaker

Blend: 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Anthology review:
The extremely strict AOC regulations in Puisseguin-Saint-Émilion (even including rules on which plots certain grapes are grown) ensure that wines like Château Soleil meet exacting standards. The 2009 Château Soleil is mostly Merlot with additions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cab Franc, with an effusively fruity personality that showcases strawberry, blackberry, and dark cherry notes. It's full and smooth in the mouth, bringing in touches of licorice and hints of flowers that mingle with a subtle cedar tone from the oak aging.
"This isn't shy about its toast, with espresso and licorice snap notes leading the way, but there's vibrant acidity driving the sweet plum and fig fruit along, with a good mineral twinge on the finish. Drink now. 8,720 cases made." —James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
