Winemaker Notes

"Reignac is the poster child for a modern-styled, "better than its pedigree" Bordeaux Superieur. The wine's high quality is a testament to the exceptional commitment demonstrated by proprietor Yves Vatelot. This large (125 acres) hillside vineyard, planted in gravelly/clay soils, is composed of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Yields are often lower than many classified growths'. The elegant, spicy 2003 Reignac reveals sweet cassis fruit, notions of smoke and herbs, supple tannin, and low acidity. While this sexy, seductive 2003 may not possess the extra level of concentration found in such top vintages as 2000 or 2001, it offers beautiful fruit as well as equilibrium. Enjoy it now and over the next 7-8 years."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
90-91 points

"Medium red. Sweet plum, cherry, mocha and espresso on the nose. Sweet and fat with fruit, with the plum and mocha flavors continuing on the palate. There's a touch of finishing dryness here but also very good plummy persistence. Very good for the vintage. Today I'm not yet convinced that the young 2005 will be better."

Chateau de Reignac, France
Chateau de Reignac Winery Image
Chateau de Reignac sits atop the highest point in the parish of Saint Loubes, overlooking a 135-hectare clay and gravel rise that includes a single 80-hectare block of vines.

The original chateau was built by Seigneur Baude de Peyron in the 16th century. It was remodeled in the 18th and 19th centuries. In the late 1800s, a central courtyard was added that features his signature wrought iron railings and in 1868, a remarkable greenhouse was designed by Gustave Eiffel.

The present owners, Yves and Stephanie Vatelot, purchased Reignac in 1990 and have worked continuously ever since to restore the estate to its former glory while introducing numerous innovations. The world-renowned Michel Rolland is their consulting oenologist.

"Reignac is the standard bearer for what can be achieved by a passionate proprietor who cuts yields to a minimum, and does everything right in the cellar. Reignac is the leading candidate for the finest generic Bordeaux produced year in and year out. It can compete favorably with classified growths..."
- Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
