Château de Reignac Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Bordeaux Supérieur Blanc 2005
91 points Robert Parker: As one might expect from proprietor Yves Vatelot, the 2005 Reignac is a superb effort exhibiting copious quantities of honeysuckle, citrus, lemon butter, and a touch of smoky oak. This medium-bodied, serious effort is meant to be consumed over the next 4-5 years. (Apr 2008)
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.
