Reignac Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Supérieur 2006

Member Review by dynowine:

Decanted 45 min. Alluring nose of caramel, leather, with hints of graphite, smoke. Balanced, smooth, and gentle in the mouth with ripe slightly sour cherry fruit under a layer of tannin and slightly bitter leather. Hints of earth. Finishes with fruit and the bitter leather. Drying tannins especially on in the finish, curiously, in the front of the mouth. Could age another 4 to 5 years but drinkable at this time, not sure about whether it will shut down later. Medium plus tannin, acid, and body. Dry. Delicious.

It is remarkable what Yves Vatelot can accomplish at this estate, which is only entitled to an Appellation Bordeaux Superieur designation. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, the super-impressive 2006 boasts a dense purple color as well... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Reignac 750ml
