What will always be some of my absolute favorite wines, Allemand’s 2013 Reynard is in a terrific place after sufficient aeration flaunting captivating and distinct Allemand aromas of dark fruits, violets, coal smoke, olive tapenade and a crushed rock minerality. The palate is deep, structured and harmonious with killer detail, finesse and elegance to balance its riveting intensity, power and verve. The texture of Allemand’s wines always stand out to me. Silky, vibrant and layered, it saturates the palate with all its glory and finely grained tannins before its lengthy mineral inflicted finish. Drink em young drink em old, and in between, Allemand is a rare miss. 🫶🏻

Effortless balance of power versus restraint.
A generous lockdown celebration for a great worker moving to new things on his birthday.

Wow! Always spectacular when a wine delivers exactly what you remember of it.

Sometimes you drink Allemand young and it’s usually a great idea, even if the wine needs 25 years 😂

This is so good! Feral, iron, dark fruit and great acidity. At Le severo, Paris.

Ordered on the advice of TA lui-meme: surprisingly open for business, oozes class and joy. I am almost tempted to dig out another one from the cellar...

Un très beau Reynard, du poivre fin, très frais, plein et riche mais avec une belle élégance, puissance contenue. 92-93

A very nice Reynard, pepper, very fresh, full and rich yet with some class and elegance, powerful but balanced.

Deep, rich & inky showing dark fruits, graphite, smoke, licorice, mineral & violet. Elegant & silky on the palate that is always an experience.

Could not resist ordering this to have with their Côte de Boeuf dish even though I knew it would be too young. This has it all, richness, power & finesse with a kaleidoscope of flavors, black cherry, raspberry, meat, iron, blood, pepper, black olive & violets.
