Rather restrained on the nose - medium intensity of black plums, hint of sweet spices and herbal (tyme) complexity. After some breathing in the glass (check out our Gabriel Glas), it drinks much better. Medium bodied, medium acidity, plums and fresh blackberries on the palate, good spice and herbal complexity with velvety and supple tannins. Really attractive medium+ finish. This is an excellent wine for its price. Had with braised pork ribs. Can be drunk on its own too. Drink now till 2023.
Made by one of the most famous wine families in Bordeaux - Dubourdieu family. The late Denis Dubourdieu who passed away few years ago was one of the most respected figure in Bordeaux. He was the Professor of Oenology at Bordeaux University, one of the top wine university in the world.
Now Chateau Reynon is managed by the two sons and the family. Judging by this wine, they are in good stead! Bravo! You must try this wine if you are looking for a Merlot based Bordeaux.
