The harvest is manual and after a drastic sorting, the grapes are put into tanks in stainless steel tanks before carefully aged for 12 months in oak barrels with 15% new oak.
The result, under the baton of Frédéric Bonnafous, is a Haut-Médoc powerful, fruity, spicy, with tannins present and harmonious , and a beautiful aging potential
Chateau Reysson has a long history in the Medoc that can be dated back to the days of the ancient Romans. Over the years, ancient ruins have been dug up on the grounds of the estate. Jumping ahead two thousand years or so, Chateau Reysson was already known as a wine producing estate in the early 1800’s. However, the modern era for the Reysson vineyard begins in 2001, when the large negociant CVBG and the Dourthe group agreed to manage Chateau Reysson for the owners, The Mercian Company in 2001. The Mercian Group is a massive Japanese wine and spirits company.
