From a large 200-acre vineyard, this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a high plateau near the village of Saint-Loubès. A consistently over-achieving wine that is far superior to its humble appellation (Bordeaux Supérieur), the 2005 may be one of the all-time great Reignacs. Inky purple, almost black to the rim, the wine looks like a two-year-old rather than one that’s already hit a decade. Proprietors Yves and Stephanie Vatelot have turned out a superlative effort in this vintage that is cru classé quality. Dense crème de cassis, some graphite, spice box and cedar wood are all present in this full-bodied, super-concentrated, and remarkably impressive Reignac that has terrific purity, texture and length. Drink it over the next decade. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Has loads of fruit on the palate with an interesting fresh tangerine note that comes through. Full-bodied and supersilky with a long finish. Best after 2012. 17500 cases made. -JS

Dense red color with a soft ruby rim. The nose shows both primary and secondary characteristics including red currant ripe red plum and blackberry followed by pencil shavings cedar tobacco and savory spices. Still youthful but beginning to shed some baby fat it shows excellent concentration with soft tannins on the palate. The fruit gives way to some earthy character towards the finish including dried mushrooms sage and soil. Excellent effort and stellar wine for the price.
