Although there is no legal definition for a Reserve wine in the United States or France, some wineries will occasionally release and market their best wines as either a Reserve or Private Reserve. It may be that the wine has been aged longer than the winery's normal cuvé́e (a legal requirement for Reserve wines from Spain and Italy), or that it came from a remarkable vineyard or was made from an exceptional vintage. In short, Reserve can mean anything and nothing, since it all depends on the winery that labels it. In most cases, however, a reputable winery that markets their premier wine as a Reserve is offering you their finest stock, and charging accordingly. See also Private Reserve.
