    Crafted by the skilled hands of winemaker Helen Kopp, with consulting winemaker Georgina Hindle, Chateau du Retout 2018 stands as a testament to the artistry of Bordeaux winemaking. This wine exudes balance, elegance, and a velvety smoothness that enchants the senses, showcasing enveloping tannins that caress the palate and a captivating volume that lingers on.

    In the glass, a deep and inviting color hints at the wine’s rich character. The nose, as celebrated by Vincenzo Arnese, is a dance of aromatics’”alive and expressive. A celebration of ripe cherry fruit takes center stage, its potency enhanced by subtle notes of liquorice and graphite. The bouquet unfolds with nuances and textures that keep you engaged with every inhale. Elegant and perfumed, it carries the essence of fresh figs, plums, and blackcurrants, accompanied by delicate floral notes of violet and lily, as noted by Daphne Teremetz.

    On the palate, the experience unfolds as layers of flavor intertwine seamlessly. Ripe black cherry and blackcurrant cordial take the lead, their purity resonating with a lifted floral quality of violets. Plush tannins provide a luxurious mouthfeel, while a delicate hint of coffee bean oak emerges on the finish’”a testament to its 12-month aging in 33% new barriques.

    Both Decanter and James Suckling’s critical acclaims are echoed in the tasting journey. Decanter’s resounding 95 points affirm the wine’s prowess, while James Suckling’s 91 points highlight its refined nature. The fine tannins, the pleasing brightness, and the refreshingly crisp finish come together to create a red Bordeaux that can be enjoyed now or savored for years to come. Chateau du Retout 2018 is more than a wine; it’s an experience of Bordeaux’s elegance captured in a bottle.

    Critical Acclaim

    DEC 95
    Decanter
    Located just south of CussacFort-Médoc, du Retout has 34ha of vineyards for red wines, sitting on clay/gravel and deep Garonne gravel-based soils; vines average 30 years old and some were planted in the 1950s. The 2018 blend was 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28.5% Merlot and 11.5% Petit Verdot, handpicked and sorted, fermented in stainless steel with twice-daily rack and return, then aged for 12 months in 33% new barriques. Georgina Hindle: Aromatic and expressive, alive and upfront. A celebration of cherry fruit: ripe, fresh, potent, with cherry stones, liquorice and graphite. Nuance and texture, with lots to like. Vincenzo Arnese: Elegant and perfumed yet powerful nose, notes of fresh fig, plum and blackcurrant, violet and lily. Poised, intense but refined. Stunning! Daphne Teremetz: Ripe black cherry and blackcurrant cordial. Pure ripe black fruit with a floral violet lift. Plush tannins and a little coffee bean oak on the finish.

    A balanced, refined red with layers of fine tannins that are polished and very pretty. Medium body. Nice brightness and a fresh finish. Drink or hold.
