"The 2016 Réaut has a classy bouquet of graphite-infused black fruit. The palate is well defined, offering supple tannin, plenty of pure black cherry and raspberry fruit and a silky-smooth finish. This Côtes de Bordeaux comes recommended."

"Fully into its stride, with soft blackcurrant, vibrant cherry, spice and warm gravel tones, in what is a fine-grained, classy claret ripe for drinking."

"I love the ripe blackcurrants, blueberries and delicate herbs in this wine. They enable it to carry the generous dry tannins very well and they drive the long finish. A blend of 58 per cent merlot, 37 per cent cabernet sauvignon and five per cent cabernet franc. Needs some time to resolve all the structure, so better from 2020."

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Reaut gives up warm black plums, crushed blackberries and cassis scents with hints of pencil lead, wild thyme, tar and smoked meats. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with juicy black fruits and savory layers with a firm frame of grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long."
