Description

The fascinatingly conceived “Retour des Îles” attempts to rediscover the character of wines in the Middle Ages that spent extended stretches at sea on merchant ships. In vintages whose quality warrants it, four particularly hardy barrels of “Barthélemy” are sent on an eight-month voyage, sailing through a multitude of latitudes and climes. These world-traveling casks are bottled upon their return without any added sulfur, and the resulting wine takes the complexity of Barthélemy to new heights: more soaring spice, a broader and more complex texture, and an unmistakable touch of salinity.

85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Carménère
