Château Reysson 2005 is a perfect wine partner with Spring lamb and roast meats. So pick up a bottle from Tesco during a special promotion from 25 February – 14 April.
Shoppers looking for reliable, good value claret to serve with traditional Easter fare should opt for a bottle of Dourthe’s Château Reysson 2005, an outstanding Cru Bourgeois Supérieur, now available from Tesco stores.
Produced from one of the best Bordeaux vintages in recent years, the 2005 Reysson exudes delicious blackberry aromas with hints of cedar on the nose. A well balanced palate with spicy black cherry fruit flavours, this wine is fresh with integrated tannins and a good finish. At £9.99 Château Reysson 2005 already represents something of a bargain - with £2 off between 25 February and 14 April - it will be a steal.
Dourthe has built its reputation on producing wines which excel in their respective categories. In 2001, it took over the management of Château Reysson to add to its portfolio of Bordeaux properties. Dourthe immediately initiated an ambitious investment programme to create a sustainable vineyard and raise viticultural standards. It totally renovated the cellars in 2002/3 and brought in its highly skilled winemaking team. Today the wines from this property are reaping the rewards of Dourthe’s vision and commitment and out performing their Cru Bourgeois Supérieur category.
