In order to classify as a Bordeaux Supérieur a wine's permitted alcoholic strength must be half a percent higher than Bordeaux AC wines. The classification is used for predominately red wines and occasionally sweet and white. Quality is uneven yet one property stands head and shoulders above the rest. Château Reignac has become the reference point for what can be achieved with zealous commitment to quality. It is the Bordeaux Supérieur by which all others are measured, and over recent vintages it has been as good as a classified growth.
Proprietors Stephanie and Yves Vatelot (who is now assisting Alain Raynaud in making Lascombes) are at the top of their game and excelled themselves in 2000, producing a remarkable wine. The wines are typically a blend of Merlot (75%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) and offer amazing value for money. Robert Parker describes Reignac as "the leading candidate for the finest generic Bordeaux produced year in and year out."
