2019 Chateau Recougne Bordeaux Superior
Blend: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Tasting Notes: The 2019 vintage saw unseasonably warm temperatures with little rainfall leading up to harvest, resulting in concentrated ripeness. As a result, this Bordeaux bursts with flavors of red fruits and black plums and has a long, leathery, smoky finish. With a deep and powerful structure and silky tannins, it has great aging potential. In fact, Recougne wines from the 1950s and 1960s are still drinking beautifully.
“This vineyard close to the city of Libourne produces a rich, generous wine. The tannins are fully integrated with the ripe structure and black-plum fruits. Drink this smoky wine from 2023.” – 91 Points, Wine Enthusiast
