One of the strongest Reignacs from proprietor Yves Vatelot, in 2009 this over-achieving estate has turned out a modern-styled Bordeaux with a viscous texture and notes of coffee bean, black currants, earth and vanillin in a delicious, front end-loaded, yet surprisingly deep, textured, full-bodied wine. It should drink nicely for 5-6 years, possibly even longer, although I am always skeptical of a generic Bordeaux that lasts much longer than a decade.
Direct, with toasted vanilla framing a core of blackberry, cherry preserve and dark plum fruit. Vanilla edge lingers through the medium-weight finish. Drink now through 2013.
*V? Very ripe and rich. Ultra-modern style that some will love or hate. Note: Futures item. Wine will arrive late 2011 to 2013. You will be contacted for delivery instructions.
