Winemaker's Notes

60% Sauvignon Blanc, 35% Semillon, 5% Muscadelle from 22 year old vines.

The consulting Enologist is Michel Rolland. In the vineyard, we practiced bud thinning, double leaf thinning, hand-picking into small baskets and double sorting before and after de-stemming. 2005 is a fantastic vintage for this exceptional Bordeaux Blanc!

Critical Acclaim

"As one might expect from proprietor Yves Vatelot, the 2005 Reignac is a superb effort exhibiting copious quantities of honeysuckle, citrus, lemon butter, and a touch of smoky oak. This medium-bodied, serious effort is meant to be consumed over the next 4-5 years."

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
