Notes from the Winemaker:
Chateau des Reyssiers is situated in the  appellation at the bottom of the Brouilly hill. It is located near Beaujeu, the historic capital of Beaujolais. The combination of the bedrock, slope, exposure and quality of the soil have created a promising terroir.

Construction of the Chateau des Reyssiers dates from the year 1706. Its current architecture still retains the main part of its original character. This Chateau has a long history over several generations of the Malachard family. In 300 years, as far as we can trace, the Chateau has always produced wine.

The Chateau carries out non-carbonic vinification in open vats with the very best grapes. After the maceration, pneumatic pressing and fermentation, the wine is matured in concrete tanks before bottling.

Tasting Note:
The Chateau des Reyssiers is supple and delicate. It is characteristically rich, long and has distinct aromas of gooseberry.

Suggested Food Pairing:
White meats, grilled entrecote, barbequed ribs, appetizers and cheese.

Ratings & Reviews

Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"A moderately ripe nose of pepper and wild dark berries with warm earth traces leads to round, generous and reasonably complex flavors that are a bit on the grapey side, all wrapped in an acceptably long finish. This is easy to like and could already be enjoyed though it will reward a year or two of bottle age. Note that an hour of air helped considerably as there was noticeable gas upon opening the bottle." - (Apr 15, 2013)

Wine Enthusiast:
"This is a bright and youthful wine, with red plum and cherry fruits that are right up front, laced with acidity and given just the right punch and tannins. This attractive wine can age, but can be drunk now." - Roger Voss (8/1/2013)
