Beautiful dark color with garnet-red hues. On the nose the wine is very charming with scents of red fruits, of cherry and grilled notes. In the mouth the structure is very feshy and smooth revealing candied fruits, spices, liquorice and tobacco harmonised aromas.

Soft tannins give to the whole delicacy and tenderness. Te length is remarkable.

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.
