Le Château Reynon, à Béguey, dans les Premières Côtes de Bordeaux, a été acheté en 1958 par le père de Florence Dubourdieu, Jacques David ; sa fille et son gendre Denis Dubourdieu, lui ont succédé en 1976. Grâce à leurs efforts, Château Reynon est aujourd’hui l’un des crus les plus renommés des Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux.

Le Château Reynon Rouge possède une couleur profonde et des arômes fondus aux nuances de réglisse, de cassis, de fumée ; les saveurs sont veloutées, fines et puissantes.

Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 89-90/100
The 2022 Reynon is juicy and super-expressive right out of the gate.
Succulent black cherry, mocha, spice, leather and incense are nicely
pushed forward. This racy Côtes de Bordeaux from the Dubourdieu family
delivers the goods. It should be a fabulous value too.

D’un point de vue géologique, le terroir de Clos Floridène ressemble ici beaucoup à celui de Barsac. Une mince couche de sables argileux riches en oxyde de fer, « les sables rouges du Barsacais », recouvre le sous-sol calcaire. Cette dalle rocheuse limite la profondeur d’enracinement de la vigne à environ 50 cm. Au cours de l’été, le calcaire finement poreux restitue à la vigne l’eau dont il s’est imbibé pendant l’hiver, évitant une contrainte hydrique excessive. Une petite partie du vignoble de Clos Floridene (3,1 hectares), sur la commune d’Illats, occupe une croupe argilo-graveleuse.

Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 88-90/100
The 2022 Clos Floridène is a bold, pungent wine, with strong savory and
gamy flavors I don’t recall seeing in the past. I have to admit, the 2022 is a
bit of a mystery. It has quite a bit of fruit density, but where it is headed is
a bit unclear.

The 2022 Labégorce, which sees the introduction of Cabernet Franc, was
picked 12 September to 5 October and aged in 40% new oak. This needs a
little time to find its voice on the nose, touches of black pepper infusing
the red and blueberry fruit. There is a hint of terracotta. The palate is
medium-bodied with grainy tannins, tensile, expressive with a lightly
spiced, gentle grip. Just a bit of dryness appears on the finish but that will
round out during élevage. This will be an utterly charming Margaux.

The 2022 Rauzan-Ségla was picked 2 to 28 September at 30hL/ha and
matured for 18 months in 50% new oak. Nicolas Audebert told me that it
contains 17% vin de presse which is slightly higher than normal, a
combination of 150 separate vinifications. This has a very opulent bouquet
with layers of black cherries, créme de cassis and violets. Perhaps just a
little too decadent? The palate is medium-bodied with fine balance, grainy
tannins, very pure and focused with quite a minerally finish. Long in the
mouth. It’s just missing that knockout blow at the moment, yet it’s still a
supremely well-crafted Margaux.

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate – 96-97/100
The 2022 Rauzan-Ségla is a beautifully sensual, charming wine, bursting with aromas of cherries, dark berries and plums mingled with hints of violets, sweet loamy soil and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, it’s fleshy and enveloping, with an ample core of vibrant fruit, supple tannins and a long, succulent finish. The 2022 is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot; and in 2022, the east-facing sides of the vines, which see the afternoon sun, were picked separately, along with anything that showed signs of stress.

The 2022 Giscours is a regal, sophisticated wine. Succulent red cherry,
blood orange, spice, menthol and rose petal lend notable vibrancy and
freshness throughout. Most surprisingly, the 2022 remains light on its feet,
especially for a wine made from such low yields in a warm, dry year. Over
the last few years Giscours has been one of the most improved properties
in the Médoc. The 2022 is another step in that direction. Sublime.

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate – 94-96+/100
With the 2022 Giscours, this estate takes another step up, delivering a deep and characterful wine redolent of cherries, dark berries, violets, peony and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, broad shouldered and layered, it’s deep and elegantly muscular, with impressive concentration, abundant but refined tannins and a structural authority reminiscent of the great Giscours vintages of the 1970s. Why is it so good? There are many reasons, but one is the high proportion of old vines—almost 60% of the blend deriving from vines that are over 50 years old—in a vintage that favored vines with deep, well-established root systems. Another is the increasing precision of harvesting at this address: Giscours’s old vines are frequently co-planted with younger replacements that have filled any gaps in the ranks over the years; so, blocks are now picked in two or three passages instead of all at once, with the younger vines picked first.

A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Merlot, the 2022 Durfort Vivens is a lovely wine that wafts from the glass with aromas of minty dark berries, sweet plums, licorice and burning embers. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, it’s rich and concentrated, with a deep and lively core of fruit framed by sweet, powdery tannins.

Vinous – Neil Martin – 93-96/100
The 2022 Durfort-Vivens is a wild, exotic wine that very much shows the
natural opulence of the year. Super-ripe dark red/purplish fruit,
pomegranate and sweet spice are front and center. There’s a bit more
Merlot in this year’s blend, and that seems to come through in the wine’s
overall fruit intensity. The final blend is project to be 70% new oak and
30% amphora, but the sample I tasted was only taken from oak
components, as the wine had only been racked into amphora shortly prior
to this tasting.

The 2022 Brane-Cantenac is captivating. Aromatic, savory and layered, the
2022 is so alluring from the outset. The natural radiance of the year is very
much on display, and yet there is nothing that is overdone about the 2022.
Hints of blood orange, spice, rose petal and minerals open over time,
offering stunning contrast to the sheer intensity of the fruit shaped by low
yields and tiny berries. Brane-Cantenac is, in my view, one of the most
under-the-radar wines on the Left Bank. The 2022 is a stunner.

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate – 95-97/100
A blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc, Carmenère and Petit Verdot, the 2022 Brane-Cantenac unwinds in the glass with aromas of dark berries, crème de cassis, black truffles, loamy soil, burning embers and violets. Medium to full-bodied, deep and velvety, with a fleshy core of fruit, terrific concentration and lively acids, it concludes with a long, perfumed finish. This is a terrific 2022 that may rival or even surpass the 2019 if it realizes all its potential in bottle.

Vinous – Neil Martin  -92-94/100
The 2022 Dauzac, aged 75% in new oak and 5% amphora, takes time to
settle in the glass. In fact, I’d allow it 10-15 minutes of aeration. It
eventually offers attractive blackberry and sea spray/estuarine scents, as if
a bit of the Gironde fell into the glass. Nothing wrong with that! The palate
is medium-bodied with granular tannins and tensile black fruit laced with
graphite. It tails off a little toward the finish. Nevertheless, this is a very
admirable Margaux in the making. With five to seven years in bottle, it will
be doling out a lot of pleasure.


Robert Parker The Wine Advocate – 88-90/100
The 2022 Les Hauts du Tertre reveals aromas of dark berries and plums, followed by a medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy palate. It’s derived from the lower-lying plots surrounding the two gravel mounds that constitute the estate’s finest terroirs.

James Suckling – 92-93/100

Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 90-92/100
The 2022 La Gurgue is plump and juicy, full of vintage 2022 radiance.
Succulent red cherry, blood orange, mint, rose petal and spice make a
strong first impression. This open-knit, plush Margaux is sure to be a
crowd pleaser. I very much admire the purity here.

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate – 90-91/100
The 2022 La Gurgue delivers aromas of dark berries, cherries and cassis, followed by a medium to full-bodied, bright and fleshy palate. A blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and fully 17% Petit Verdot, this pure, fruit-driven Margaux will be released under the old La Gurgue label from yesteryear.
