94-point, perfect 10 Bordeaux that costs hundreds less than the big names -- and it's even less expensive than normal in our 1-day Insider Deal! It's the Chateau de Reignac Grand Vin de Reignac.
Hi everyone, we're extremely excited to be able to bring you today's wine, which has quite a story attached to it.
This is a wine that has grown quite a reputation in Europe thanks to an incredible blind tasting of the Grand Jury Europeen where it out-classed wines that cost hundreds and even thousands of dollars more a bottle!
You can watch the story of the tasting here.
And even though we knew the results and we knew the consulting winemaker is none other than the renowned Michel Rolland, we were still a bit skeptical. However, the more we learned about the unique terroir of this estate and the overflowing acclaim the more excited we became to taste it.
That acclaim includes 94 points from Yves Beck, 92 points from James Suckling, 93 points from Adrian van Velson, 92 points from Falstaff and more on the vintage we are offering here today plus a literal boatload of 90-96 point scores on previous vintages.
And when we finally did taste the wine, we were not disappointed! I can confidently say that all the hype is real on this one, as evidenced by our Perfect 10 Taste Rating.
All of this and the wine normally retails for just $40, which is a mere pittance by Bordeaux standards. Of course, as good as value as this may be even at that price, that's not the way we roll here at Reverse Wine Snob...

The 2016 Grand Vin de Reignac is 67% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc from the 40-year old estate vines of Chateau de Reignac. The wine is aged in French oak barrels (50% new) for 19 months.
From the winery:
Château de REIGNAC is ideally situated at the confluence of the Dordogne and Garonne Rivers (the “Entre Deux Mers”). REIGNAC offers a unique quality, that of reuniting the best types of terroir of both the Right and the Left Banks in a single estate.
Reignac offers the best Bordeaux quality price ratio, confirmed by blind tasting by European Grand Jury and scores awarded by the world’s leading tasters. Qualitative consistency of our wines results from our obsession for quality and our great terroir.
The original Château was built by Seigneur Baude de Peyron in the 16th century. Remodeled in the 18th and 19th centuries. A remarkable greenhouse was designed by Gustave EIFFEL, the man who created the tower that bears his name in Paris. Yves and Stephanie Vatelot, purchased REIGNAC in 1990 and have worked continuously ever since to restore the state to its former glory while introducing numerous innovations. The very talented Michel Rolland is their consulting oenologist.
The 2016 Grand Vin de Reignac opens with beautiful aromas of black cherry, licorice and spice plus various other touches like tobacco and mint. It's a harmonious and very enticing start.
Smooth and plush, this full-bodied wine is just lovely in the mouth. Slightly tannic with similar flavors to the nose, this is simply delicious.
It ends dry, quite long and a bit grippy and chewy. It is aged wonderfully right now but also still has plenty of life ahead of it and probably even a little bit more improvement in its future. This is the complete package right here and a great example of Bordeaux.

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"I am seriously considering having the Insider Deals as my primary go-to. Why did I not do this sooner? Thank you"

"I love this wine I bought from you!!!! Thanks for doing what do do!!!"
"This an absolutely amazing wine, Jon. And $5 shipping for four bottles? You've outdone yourself!"
"Thanks Jon. We already drank all 6 of the first order so we were ecstatic to see you offering it again. My wife and I both love it."
"You are a man after my own heart. I have always looked for the best and least expensive wine and you just made it easier. Cheers!"
"Hi Jon, well, I did something people have warned about - bought 6 bottles and should have bought 12!"
"Have had nothing but great bottles since I started ordering your recommendations. Thanks so much! "
"We've gotten in on three of the deals and have been VERY happy with the value. I originally was going to do a wine club thing but the insider deal appeals to me much more."
