Overview of the Wine
"Having managed the estate since 2001, and now its current owners, we have undertaken an extensive quality enhancement programme including yield control, intensified green harvesting and complete renovation of the winery facilities. Château Reysson is now regarded as an exemplar of quality, affordable Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois wine." Patrick Jestin
Château Reysson dates back as far as the Middle-Age. Located at the summit of a magnificent plateau, the vineyard is planted on limestone-clay and limestone rock (fossilised shells), which is particularly suited to cultivating Merlot. Having been responsible for managing this estate since 2001, and now its current owners, Dourthe has been responsible for managing this estate since 2001 and has undertaken a large-scale quality enhancement programme including yield control, intensification of green harvesting and complete renovation of the winery facilities. Château Reysson now has the distinction of being a shining example of high quality, accessible Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois wines.

Grape / Blend
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux, France
Stunning dark ruby in appearance. Blackberries and black cherries abound on the bouquet, backed by lovely freshness. Highly concentrated on the palate with unctuous tannins. This soft, voluptuous wine grows in stature and culminates in a finish defined by the delicate toastiness of lovely oak.
91 Points - James Suckling
Fresh herb and blackcurrant aromas with hints of walnut skin. Full body, firm and velvety tannins and a savory finish. Needs time to open.
