Winemaker's Notes

Reignac's gentle slopes and gravely soils facilitate natural drainage. The gravel reflects and stores the sun's heat which promotes early ripening of the estate's grapes.

Blend: 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc

91 Points

"An over-achieving generic Bordeaux, Reignac has turned out a real classic in this vintage. Opaque ruby/purple with notes of graphite, crushed rock, forest floor and black currants, this wine is medium to full-bodied, very rich and best drunk over the next decade."
90 Points
