The wine comes from the heart of Haut-Médoc between Margaux and Saint-Julien. It is structured, with black fruits and layers of ripe tannins. The dominance of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend gives the wine its taut, mineral texture as well as the ability to age. Cellar Selection

The 2018 Château du Retout has a fragrant, floral bouquet of vibrant cranberry and red currant fruit laced with wilted rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins. There is a bit of hardness, especially toward the briny finish, though hopefully it will mellow with bottle age.
