This luxury cuvee from Reignac’s proprietor Yves Vatelot is always 100% Merlot fermented in tiny cigar barrels for alcoholic as well as malolactic fermentation. This is a pedal-to-the-metal, super-concentrated, rich wine that showcases the best characteristics of 2012 – very ripe Merlot, tiny yields, and impeccable vinification and elevage. This is an amazing wine for the vintage and certainly one of superstars of 2012. Remarkably, the back label suggests this hit 15% natural alcohol, which tells you the sort of ripeness it achieved, without any of the characteristics whatsoever of overripeness like fig or prune. This is a great, great effort in this vintage and should drink well for at least a decade or more. Apr 2015, www.robertparker.com
