"Highly Recommended" - "A little reductive at first, but give it some air and a whoosh of clean blackberry fruit rides in on a bed of spicy and exotic apparent oak. No green notes at all, and ample depth and richness. The fruit density will carry the oak enough. Drink 2018 - 2027.
A leafy cabernet nose leads into quite a powerful and tannic palate with the sleek body of a marathon runner. Better in 2018.
With an unusually high proportion (nearly 17%) of Petit Verdot in the blend, this is both darkly structured and dark in color. It is weight, intense youthful acidity and black-currant fruits. It's also rich, full of tannins and in need of several years. Drink from 2021. (RV) *Editors' Choice*
Delightfully ripe, with an inviting core of plum and blackberry preserves, picking up an anise edge on the finish. A solid alder spine runs throughout, adding length and definition. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now through 2020. (JM) *Smart Buys*
The 2014 Château du Retout has a potent blueberry and blackberry-scented bouquet with a strong floral element. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, good depth and well judged acidity to counterbalance the intensity here. It is a big, bold statement of a wine, one that the team manages to pull off because there is plenty of depth and freshness on the finish. I like the cut of its jib. Tasted September 2016. (NM)
