The symmetrical 17th century Chateau de Reignac sits atop a gravelly plateau in the peninsular town of St. Loubes, but a stones throw away from the Gironde River. The 200 acre vineyard is planted on rolling hills in clay and gravel soil. Through pruning and green harvesting, yields were limited to just 35 hls/ha (2 ton/acre) The fruit was hand harvested in mid September, the fruit was table sorted twice, before and after destemming to eliminate any less than perfect grapes. The final blend is 75% Merlot, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon.
"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 as a bouquet of sweet creme de cassis, spring flowers, toasty oak, and background forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, richly fruity, and pure with an alluring texture as well as length, it should drink nicely for 5-10 years."
