Château des Reyssiers

Régnié "Château des Reyssiers"


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


The Château 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

With its beautiful deep color and violet hues, the nose of our Château des Reyssiers 2018 is expressive with notes of strawberry and black cherry. The palate is round, supple and ample. It shows very nice aromas of red fruits with a superb peppery finish.

Great aromas of black raspberries with earthy and smoky overtones, make this stand out in the Beaujolais crowd. A well-structured yet energetic wine with a long, clearn finish, in which the supple tannins and minerality are beautifully interwoven.

A fantastic mid-range Beaujolais, showing youthful, juicy, and fresh Gamay fruit, with a long and well-balanced finish. A Beaujolais with bags of character for bistros, gastropubs and indie merchants.

It might be the most complicated wine in the world but it puts a smile on your face even when you're having one of those down-in-the-dumps days, wondering when COVID will sling its hook and allow us to resume some sense of normality. It's light in body, juicy and ripe with cherry compote flavours. Low in tannins, it slips down all too easily.

Concentrated style, showing blueberries, raspberries and violets, with a light texture and crisp acidity.
