Carat cuvée exceptionnelle

On great vintages, some plots offer us exceptional grapes, carefully vinified to create CARAT de Château REAUT.

True jewel of our vineyard, CARAT de Château REAUT will enchant you with its aromas, its harmony, its delicacy.

Blend with 80 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 20 % Merlot, aged in barrels, CARAT de Château REAUT is produced in very limited quantities for a great signature.

 

Vinification :

The grapes are all hand-harvested in small baskets to preserve the integrity of the grapes up to the sorting table.

Vinification is achieved through gentle extraction and moderate fermentation to give the wine power while keeping the fruitiness, sweetness and elegance of tannins.
The wine is matured in thoroughly selected barrels :

  • 50% of new oak, selected for their origins and with a slow and deep barrel burning.
  • 50% % in one-year-old oak barrels, as carefully selected as the first ones.

Barrel ageing lasts more than 18 months in order for the wine to blend with the wood. At the end of the maturing process, the wine is not racked so as to preserve the fruit in the wine and to retain its freshness and youthfulness.

The fining is carried out with fresh egg-white. This wine is not filtered. It is bottled directly in our special […].

 

Château REAUT :

Totally replanted as Grand Cru by the Great Maison Roederer, Château REAUT (26 Ha in Cadillac Cotes de Bordeaux) was purchased by Yannick EVENOU in 2012 in partnerships with friens from Bordeaux and Burgundy.

More than 400 private investors joined them from 10 different countries. As the Initial project was to propose great quality wines ;it is still of course adding the great value of sharing pleasure to produce and to drink great wines.

 

Award :

James Suckling 91/100
A brash, modern and ripe nose of purple-berry and dark-plum aromas that lead to a vey fleshy and plush palate withan array of rich but fresh cassis and dark plums. Has promise. Try from 2020.

Vinous 90/100
The 2015 Carat de Chateau Réaut is a selection made from the estate’s best Merlot and Cabernet. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, menthol, licorice and sweet French oak give the Carat much of its racy personality. This exotically ripe, flamboyant Côtes de Bordeaux has so much to
offer. Drink it over the next few years.
