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.
100 % Merlot
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 and stainless steel vats.
The soil quality, the moderate yields and the refined wine-making process all contribute to create an elegant red wine of a ruby-like color, complex and tasty with fruity and spice aromas.
