Denis Dubourdieu (deceased in 2016), known for the quality' of his whites, was concerned to produce in his Château Reynon (80% Merlot) a balanced and charming red wine, favouring fresh fruit and silky tannins.
Quarin : 87/100 « Couleur sombre, intense et pourpre. Nez d’intensité moyenne, fruité, pur, avec du fond et une touche florale. Bouche caressante, fruitée, savoureuse, avec une tannicité douce. »
Galloni (Vinous) : 88-90/100 « The 2020 Reynon is fabulous. Super-ripe dark plum, chocolate, sweet spice and leather are all kicked up. This tasty Cadillac from the Dubourdieu family once again delivers fabulous quality, especially for the money. Reynon is one of the very best values readers will find anywhere in the world. »
Martin (Vinous) : 87-89/100 « The 2020 Reynon has a vibrant blackberry, raspberry and marine scented nose, a bit oaky at the moment, though that will be assimilated with time. The palate is medium-bodied with dense black fruit. »
