Fresh cherry and currant preserve flavors are lined with a light vanilla streak, staying fresh and defined through the finish.

Of course, the 2016 Chateau Reynon will always be tinged with sadness as it was the year that proprietor Denis Dubourdieu passed away. This is quite upfront and bold on the nose and perhaps "glossier" than I expected. The palate is very tannic and firm on the entry with touches of tobacco and sea salt, grippy in the mouth. It is clearly a wine destined for the long-term, so afford it two or three years in bottle.
Wine Enthusiast: 91
Harvested under the direction of the Dubourdieu sons, this smoky wine is ripe, full of rich juicy fruit as well as firm tannins. A layer of strong black fruits is balanced by acidity. This rich, deliciously fruity wine has a fine future. Drink from 2022. Best Buy.
James Suckling: 91
Dense and fruity with blueberry, salt and crushed-stone character. Medium to full body and a savory finish.
