2014 Reynon Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux

SKU #1214630 88-91 points Wine Spectator

 Bracing lime and tarragon notes are allied to a lean frame, with tangy sel gris accents rippling through the finish. Offers a bony, chiseled feel. (JM, Web-2015)

88-90 points Vinous

 The 2014 Reynon Blanc, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, shows lovely varietal character with more of an emphasis on texture rather than grassy/green flavors. Citrus and floral notes come forward in an attractive, aromatic white to drink young. There is a lot to like in this expressive Sauvignon Blanc from proprietors Denis et Florence Dubourdieu. Best of all, the Blanc should be a fabulous value. (AG)  (4/2015)

 Lively, whistle-clean and super-brisk. Even crisper than usual, which is why it is probably best drunk a little more mature than most vintages of this house white of Denis Dubourdieu. (JR)  (6/2016)

Our best selling white Bordeaux for the last 12 years is 100% Sauvignon Blanc this vintage which lends a touch more grapefruit pith and nuances of smoke and flint. There is still plenty of crushed citrus and mineral to keep this as zippy and refreshing as ever.

The first of the heavenly 2014 white Bordeaux has arrived. We only get 50 cases a year of this one. It is 100% Sauvignon Blanc with mineral notes and melon mid palate flavors. Perfect summertime sipper.
Drink from 2015 to 2017

Fresh and crispy, this is my favorite vintage for the Reynon. Citrus and gooseberries, floral, with lots of minerality, and believe it or not a delicious note of honey! Quite dry, of course, and absolutely delicious!

Snappy, racy, bone dry white Bordeaux. This one is all about pithy citrus fruit, stony minerals and white florals. Crisp and refreshing, a great summer aperitif or shellfish wine. Excellent value for money.

If you like a racy, bright Savvy, this Reynon is for you. The very high quality of the 2014 vintage for white Bordeaux is here, with not only great acidity and length, but also quite good texture. This wine will make a great aperitif, but also pair very well with everything from shellfish to chicken. All of this at $2 less a bottle than the very good 2013... Thank you, strong dollar!

Additional Information:


Sauvignon Blanc

- One of the best known "international" varieties originally cultivated in France and considered the parent of, with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon. Sauvignon's wonderfully distinctive aromatics generate some of wine's most colorful descriptors, among them "cat pee," herbaceous, grassy, citrusy the world over. In France, the apex of Sauvignon Blanc production is the Loire Valley, in the appellations of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, where the terroir expresses itself most beautifully through the grape. Sauvignon Blanc is also the leading white grape varietal in Bordeaux, where it is paired with the fatter, richer Sémillon to varying degrees. Relatively easy to cultivate, though more suited to cool climates, Sauvignon Blanc has made inroads in Europe outside of France, especially in Northeastern Italy's Friuli and Alto Adige, but also on the Slovenian border. These lovely wines are often overshadowed by Sauvignon Blanc's achievements in the New World, namely New Zealand, South Africa and California. New Zealand's Sauvignon Blancs, more conspicuously fruity than most French examples, landed the small island nation on the world wine map in the late-1980s and 1990s. South African Sauvignons are one of the most successful international varieties produced in that country and are often quite elegant and affordable. In California, Robert Mondavi managed to, almost single-handedly, created a market for Sauvignon Blanc by renaming his oak-fermented version Fumé Blanc. While some wineries still use the name, California Sauvignon Blanc has secured its place in the California wine pantheon, particularly those from the Napa Valley. Washington State, Chile and Argentina also have considerable plantings of the grape.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
