Reynon is the home property of Denis and Florence Dubourdieu and is situated on a perfect south-facing slope at Beguey in the Entre-Deux-Mers. Denis is a noted professor of oenology at Bordeaux University specialising in white wines, and now advises many prestigious estates, like Yquem and Batailley in Bordeaux and Jaboulet and Grillet in the Rhône. They treat their vines with as much care as they would a Sauternes vineyard picking by hand at perfect ripeness.

Harvest : ManuaComplex and tasty with grapefruit and white peach aromas, with mineral and smoky hints and with a remarkable ageing potential in bottle over 7 years.Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats. Ageing on lees in tanks last 5 to 7 months before bottling
