    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Chateau Reynon, Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux, 2009

    Professor Denis Dubourdieu's home estate has got to be one of our favourite value picks in all of Bordeaux. A humble Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux, this wine shows a class and refinement well above its lowly appellation. Dark berries sweet earth, flowers and cedar on the nose give way to unctuous sweet berry fruit on the palate. The palate is silky smooth but with plenty of bright acidity and tannic spine to provide lift and grip. This really is a tremendously good little wine that, while drinking now, is only set to get better. A value cellar treasure if ever we saw one.

    Ian d'Agata, Vinous
    (80% merlot, 10% cabernet sauvignon and 10% petit verdot) Ruby-purple. Perfumed aromas of fresh blackcurrant, minerals and mint. Suave, fine-grained and vibrant, with a stony mineral quality framing the vibrant black fruit and cedar flavors. Finishes classy and long, with chewy but ripe tannins, very good energy and noteworthy verve. Since 2008, this wine is made using only the grapes grown on the property's clay-and-limestone parcels, while owner Denis Dubourdieu uses the grapes grown on sandier plots in other wines. The best Reynon rouge ever.

    Denis Dubourdieu’s home estate in the Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux is capable of producing really good value wine. We have followed the 2005, 2009 and 2010 vintages, which have all been excellent, however, we haven’t seen the consistency in the so called ‘off vintages’ to make this one of our core offerings.
