TN : Chateau Reysson Reserve du Chateau 2007, Cru Bourgeois, Dourthe, Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux, France

This wine is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot.

The estate belongs to the Japanese wine and spirits company Mercian Corporation. Dourthe has been managing Chateau Reysson since 2001. The estate encompassed 40 hectares. The chateau was classified as Cru Bourgeois Superieur in 2003.

Under the vestiges of the medieval castle that was the first to bear the name Reysson, archaeologists have discovered the remains of the theatre of Noviomagus, the ancient town of the Bituriges Vivisques tribe who founded Burdigala (Bordeaux) in the 3rd century B.C.

The quality of its wines was recognised at an early date, with Château Reysson featuring in 1850 among the Crus Remarquables de Vertheuil ranked by Charles Cocks, author of the famous work “Bordeaux et ses Vins” edited by Michel Féret.

This wine was imported by Vinunic AB.
