Winemaking Notes: The Rey family produces approximately 12,000 bottles per year of their Haut-Médoc. This wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and is then racked into small barrel (none of which is new) for one year before being assembled and bottled. Wine is fined with egg whites.

Vineyard Notes: Vineyards are cultivated without the use of chemical herbicides and are tightly spaced. The close spacing results in higher density per hectare (9,500 plants/ha), but lower yield per vine, guaranteeing greater richness of polyphenols in the ripe grapes.
