LeDomduVin: Chateau de Reignac Grand Vin de Reignac 2015
Opened a few weeks ago while on vacation in Bordeaux with the kids. I wanted to try it to see how it evolved since I bought it a few years earlier.
It showed potential, yet I found it still too young to deliver it fully. But it was my mistake, as I opened it and poured it directly into the glass, while it would have definitely benefited from a good hour or two of decantation. Moreover, it was not properly stored at my father's house, where it suffered from light and temperature fluctuations.
However, I still enjoyed it.
The nose offered intense dark, fruity, and warm oaky aromas. Displaying dark cherry, plum, cassis and liquorice mingled with oaky, earthy, and spicy notes. The palate was quite intense, generous, rich, full, and balanced, with a nice silky texture. Offering plenty of dark fruits, earth, spice, oak, and mineral nuances expanding from the attack to the finish. Tannins were fine and integrated, yet still quite firm, bringing a backbone structure and ageing potential. The finish was quite long and persistent.
I enjoyed it, yet I would advise giving it a few more years stored in proper condition. It will reward those who will have the patience to wait for it a little longer.
NB: Thank you, Nicolas and the Vatelot Family, for your wines.
