Reignac Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Supérieur 2009

Member Review by dynowine:

Decanted 45 min. Alluring nose of caramel, leather, with hints of graphite, smoke. Balanced, smooth, and gentle in the mouth with ripe slightly sour cherry fruit under a layer of tannin and slightly bitter leather. Hints of earth. Finishes with fruit and the bitter leather. Drying tannins especially on in the finish, curiously, in the front of the mouth. Could age another 4 to 5 years but drinkable at this time, not sure about whether it will shut down later. Medium plus tannin, acid, and body. Dry. Delicious.

Deep purple/red with medium intensity and a slightly faded rim. Medium intense nose, very clean with a steely character. Aromas of leather, pepper, deep plum, cassis, a bit -o- funk, vanilla, and oak. Medium weight on teh palate with w/ a lingering dry finish. Flavors of chocolate, vanilla, berry, with medium to heavy tannin's and a rich and lingering finish. I think this has a way to open up yet! Will try second half of bottle tommorrow. [NR]

Great Bordeaux Superior - puts some classed growths to shame. Brilliant value, if you can find any!

A beautifully made, perennial overachiever from proprietor Yves Vatelot, the 2008 Reignac was cropped at 30 hectoliters per hectare, enjoyed malolactic in barrel, and was aged on its lees for four months. The result is a beautiful blend of 75% Merlot... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Reignac 750ml

It is remarkable what Yves Vatelot can accomplish at this estate, which is only entitled to an Appellation Bordeaux Superieur designation. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, the super-impressive 2006 boasts a dense purple color as well... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

There's a good smoky prune note on the nose, with lots of floral and mineral nuances. Has loads of fruit on the palate, with an interesting fresh tangerine note that comes through. Full-bodied and supersilky, with a long finish. Best after 2012. 17,5... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Reignac 750ml

Possibly the finest Reignac I have ever tasted from proprietor Yves Vatelot, this superlative blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon is treated like a spoiled child, aged on its lees, and bottled unfiltered. There are over 16,000 cases of thi... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Reignac 750ml
