    Product description

    Four generations of Lurtons have been making wine at Château Reynier, a fortified farmhouse dating back to the 15th century, which was used as a stopover on the Santiago de Compostela pilgrim route. This stunning property is surrounded by 28 hectares of gentle slopes on the hillsides of Entre-Deux-Mers, across the river from Saint-Émilion.

    Since 1996, it is Oenologist Marc Lurton, with the help of his wife Agnès, who has been running the estate. Healthy grapes, the fruit of culture raisonnée and rigorous selection at harvest, are made into wine according to traditional methods, though Marc Lurton is not averse to modern techniques when it comes to improving quality. This blend, composed of 50% cabernet sauvignon and 50% merlot, is matured for 6 months in French and American oak barrels in a striking cellar dug into a seam of limestone under the vineyard. The nose of this claret, to which notes of mint bring freshness, is quite racy and classic. The aromas of cinnamon and vanilla oak spice and blackcurrant, cherry and blueberry fruit are well-integrated. Soft tannins and great acidity give the wine spine. The cherry and berry flavours feel stimulatingly sour at first but then the sweetness of the fruit, enhanced by that of the spice, takes over. This dynamic effect on the palate leads to an equally fresh finish. The quality of this wine owes it the title of club favourite. It is a perfect accompaniment to roast beef.
