This consistent overachiever from proprietor Yves Vatelot is a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. By keeping yields to Cru Class levels of 35 hectoliters per hectare and using high-quality oak, Vatelot is able to produce a wine far above its humble pedigree. The 2012 is a serious wine, structured, deep ruby/purple, with excellent concentration, impressive purity, excellent integration of new oak, and a long finish. This is a major sleeper of the vintage and another classic offering from Reignac. Perfect to drink now, the nose is very complex, the tannins are perfectly integrated, there is a lot of roundness and softness.
