CHATEAU REIGNAC BORDEAUX SUPERIEUR - 2000
Made from 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. 13% alcohol.
Dark purple color with a beautiful charcoal-smoked oak nose. Lots of barnyard on the nose as well on pop and pour. Medium-bodied with lush dark fruits, hints of chalk and chocolate, earth and flowers, tobacco and vanilla. Great plum finish. High acidity suggests this wine has many years to go ahead of it.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Simply terrific and beautiful effort. Gorgeous fruit and balance. Wonderful character and smoke. Bought this wine for around $20 on release. It is worth twice that price if you can find it. Love this wine.
