    THE STORY: Chateau Sansonnet, like many Bordeaux estates has a connection to royalty. During the 19th century, Chateau Sansonnet at one point belonged to the Duke Decazes, Prime Minister of Louis XVIII. The Robin family owned the vineyard since 1892. The d’Aulan family, the former owners of the famous Champagne producer, Piper-Heidsieck Champagne purchased the Right Bank estate of Chateau Sansonnet in 1999. The d’Aulan family upgraded the estate and sold the property a decade later in 2009 to the Lefevere family. Chateau Sansonnet is a property on the upswing. Michel Rolland and Jean Luc Thunevin of Valandraud are both involved with Chateau Sansonnet. And before them, Jean Michel Arcaute from Chateau Clinet in Pomerol gave the property a hand, as did Stephane Derenoncourt as well. A lot of effort is spent these days in trying to produce the best wine possible at the estate.
