Situation & History
Château Reynon, located in Beguey in the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, was purchased in 1958 by Florence Dubourdieu's father, Jacques David; his daughter and son in law, Denis Dubourdieu, took over the vineyard in 1976. Thanks to their hard work, Château Reynon is today one of the most renown Premières Côtes de Bordeaux estate.
Deep gravelly soil layers on clayey subsoil top a perfectly well drained hill. At mid-slope the soils are clayey and calcareous and the rock protrudes in some areas. The soils are sandier at the foot of the slope.
20,5 ha 81 % Merlot - 13 % Petit Verdot - 6 % Cabernet Sauvignon
85 % Merlot - 9 % Cabernet-Sauvignon 6 % Petit Verdot
Wine making and ageing
Ripened harvest is handpicked and undergoes 20 to 25 days maceration at moderate temperature (25°C to 30°C). Ageing is performed in oak barrels a third of which is new, for 12 months.
Chateau Reynon Rouge has a deep color and subdued aromas with liquorice black-currant and smoky nuances; the flavors are velvety, elegant and powerful. They have an exceptional style that privileges the freshness of the fruit concentrated by the "noble rot", strength, balance and subtlety of the flavors.

« The reds often need a few years to show their delicious blackcurrant and raspberry fruit and creamy texture to best advantage, but that soft, creamy texture means you can drink them as soon as they're bottled »
