Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Ratings Pedigree:

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and focused, with a very tasty beam of linzer torte and black cherry confiture, and good briary grip taking over on the finish.
Barrel Sample: 88-91 Points"
91 Points

"This Bordeaux Superieur from the gifted as well as uncompromising Yves Vatelot is a selection of the finest lots. An astonishingly rich, concentrated 2011 that competes with cru classes selling for 2 to 5 times as much, it boasts a dense purple color along with copious aromas of new saddle leather, spice box, lead pencil shavings, black currants, blackberries and a hint of espresso. This full-bodied, surprisingly rich effort must be tasted to be believed. It should last and improve for at least 5-7 years, perhaps as long as a decade. As it has been in many previous vintages, the 2011 Reignac is a major sleeper of the vintage. Kudos to Proprietor Vatelot!"
90 Points

"Moderately saturated dark red. Aromas of black cherry, licorice and menthol, lifted by a floral nuance. Supple and silky on entry, with dark fruit flavors firmed at the back by iron and mineral nuances. The broad, inky finish shows mounting tannins. This risks being a very austere claret, though it's certainly concentrated. Time will help it come into its own, especially if the fruit holds up.
Range: 87-90"
