Wine Enthusiast 88 points - 87-89. Barrel sample. While the wood flavor dominates here, it does support the ripe blackberry fruit. This wine’s fruitiness will eventually be what marks the wine out.

Wine maker notes
Chateau 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. Chateau Reysson now has the distinction of being a shining example of high quality, accessible Haut-Medoc Cru Bourgeois wines.
