Description

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.

Winemaking

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.
