Medium to full body, quite smooth may be because of merlot mixture. Not strong characteristics but very good orthodox wine.
On opening this beaut, taking an irresistible deep sniff I get notes of black forest gateaux and cherry right from the opener. Rich in fruitiness and chocolate, but upon tasting comes across as quite subtle; quite a dry texture to the mouth, but the aftertaste is delicately pleasant. This Lingers carefully for some time. Excellent choice with beef.
Rich, choclatey cocoa goodness, savory, but dry attack, and a soft lingering release.
This Bordeaux needs about 1 hour or decanting, beautiful finish for such an inexpensive wine. Hidden gem, excellent for grilled lamb.
Four and a half glasses
Great wine for the price.

2005 is an excellent vintage possessing high acidity as well as impressive levels of weight, richness, and texture. Alex Lallos. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Reignac Blanc 750ml
A fairly complex white that's terrific with simple, grilled fatty fish or lighter pork dishes.
Possibly the finest Reignac I have ever tasted from proprietor Yves Vatelot, this superlative blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon is treated like a spoiled child, aged on its lees, and bottled unfiltered. There are over 16,000 cases of thi... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Reignac 750ml
