Tasting Notes
91/100 - James Sukcling
2014 : Fresh herb and blackcurrant aromas with hints of walnut skin. Full body, firm and velvety tannins and a savory finish. Needs time to open.
91/100 - Wine Enthusiast
2015 : This rich, juicy wine has 90% Merlot in the blend giving it vibrancy, rich tannins and great black-plum and spice flavors. It is a ripe wine, powerful and dense with intense youthful acidity that will soften. Drink this balanced, firm wine from 2022.
92/100 - Wine Enthusiast
2016 : From one of the estates owned by Bordeaux negociant Dourthe, this wine is well structured with elegant tannins that are complemented by the black fruits and rich acidity. It is a balanced, ripe wine that will develop well

One word to describe my wine

The history of the Château
In the heart of Medoc, near Vertheuil, lies the estate of Chateau Reysson. Known in the 19th century as “Batiment-Bigot” or the “Bigot building”, the estate was renamed Chateau Raysson, before finally taking the name Reysson, after the vast area where traces of the medieval chateau – which first bore the name Reysson - can still be found. Already featuring among the appellation’s finest wines in the first edition of the “Feret” wine guide - Bordeaux et ses vins - in 1850, the estate was acquired by renowned businessman Alfred Dreyfus. The chateau continued to flourish until the early 20th century and was ranked among the region’s finest cru bourgeois wines. Sold in 1933 further to the owner’s death, the estate changed hands several times and gradually lost its allure. The Japanese company Mercian Corporation bought the estate in 1988 and entrusted Dourthe with its management in 2001, who subsequently became its owner in 2014.
