91 Points Wine Spectator
 
A slightly traditional style, offering singed sandalwood and balsa wood notes, with black tea and bergamot flavors up front, followed by gentle plum and cassis fruit. The lightly smoky finish hangs on well, with a fine-grained but lightly firm structure. Drink now through 2022 –JM
 
Ch Reignac 2012
$32.99* – 24 bottles available
 
90 Points Robert Parker
 
This consistent overachiever from proprietor Yves Vatelot is a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. By keeping yields to cru classé levels of 35 hectoliters per hectare and using high-quality oak, Vatelot is able to produce a wine far above its humble pedigree. The 2012 is a serious wine – structured, deep ruby/purple, with excellent concentration, impressive purity, excellent integration of new oak, and a long finish. This is a major sleeper of the vintage and another classic offering from Reignac. Drink it over the next 10 years or so – RP
