Chateau Recougne rouge 2018 Bordeaux Superieur (SOLD OUT)
Château Récougne 2018, Bordeaux Supérieur, one of the two estates run by Marc and Élodie (the other being Château Boutisse, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru) , and a superb introduction to the general red wine style associated with Saint-Émilion. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Carmenère blend. 2018 is a breakthrough vintage for entry level Bordeaux with a hot and dry summer leading to lashings of pleasure in even the simplest reds. This is a straightforward wine but a complete crowd-pleaser with rich aromatics and easy-drinking smoothness. Rated an impressive 3.9 out of 5 on Vivino and recently awarded a gold medal at the Gilbert and Gaillard International Challenge 2020, one of France's most important wine competitions.
