"This is really solid, with velvety layers of crushed plum and boysenberry nicely woven with sweet spice and warm cocoa. Broad but focused." (WS)

"One of this humble appellation’s outstanding wines, Reignac always performs well in blind tastings against the classified-growths, and while expensive for a Bordeaux Superieur, it merits its price. The inky/ruby/purple-colored 2010 reveals a big, sweet nose of black currants, pain grille, licorice and earth. Medium to full-bodied with shocking levels of concentration for its pedigree, consumers should be thrilled that some proprietors want to try and achieve something well beyond the norm for an appellation. This 2010 should drink well for a decade or more." (WA)

"Fully saturated ruby-purple. Somewhat oaky aromas of blackcurrant, coffee and herbs. Dense and deep, with an austere quality to the black fruit, coffee and herb flavors. Today the wine's load of oak is partly camouflaged by good herbal and floral lift. The building, oak-driven tannins are chewy and serious but not drying. This needs time in bottle to develop more nuance and definition, but has enough underlying fruit to support aging. A more refined and less superripe version of Reignac than usual." (IWC)

"Reignac opens with oak, espresso bean, jammy black fruit and cassis, Round, supple and packed with jammy ripe fruit, this should offer pleasure on release. 88-90 Pts." (JL)

"Chewy and rich, with a long finish of toasted oak, coffee and fruit. Ripe and rich tannins. Structured. Better than 2009.$$" (JS)
