Today I am tasting the 2005 Chateau de Reignac Bordeaux Superior Red Blend. This was given to me by a very good friend for Memorial Day.

The color is a beautiful deep garnet. On the nose are dark fruits, fig, black plum, blackberry, black currant, raisins, bakers chocolate and licorice.

The dark fruit continues on through to the palate. Ripe black plum, blackberry, black currant, black cherry, clove, licorice and it is very earthy.

This right bank Bordeaux is full bodied with medium acidity and there is a mouth full of sandy, sweet medium + tannins.

This is a nice blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Given that this is a 2005 vintage makes for a very enjoyable Bordeaux Blend.

Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷

Very good for a €9 in Paris grocery. Needs oxygen but very good once ready.

This time I disagree with the crowd. This Bordeaux does not go beyond a 8.0. Lacks texture and body. Well below expectations. Unbalanced.

Powerful and pleasant bouquet of floral and spice with notes of dark cherry. Rustic, warm and simple on the palate with a smooth finish. No bitter endings here. -2013

Just what it should be - nice tannins, fuller bodied, red fruits, and perfect with strong cheese.
