February's Wine of the Month

2016 Château Recogne
Bordeaux Supérieur

Berliner Wein Trophy Gold Medal Award

0.75 l – or €7.93 per litre


Flavour:

With a deep ruby colour, it reveals notes of red fruits and subtle spices on the nose. On the palate, the attack has a slight touch of liquorice with subtle tannins. This concentrated, well-structured wine is wonderfully smooth because it is made primarily with Merlot.

It is consistently rated as one of the finest Bordeaux Supérieur wines available. To fully enjoy this wine we advise that you decant it one hour before serving it at a temperature of 18 °C.


Information and tips:

Origin: France

Pairs well with:
• Beef tartare

• Roasted quail with white grapes
• Camembert, Saint-Albray, Emmental cheese

The vineyard’s 100 hectares overlook the river Dordogne and are located on rolling hills close to the large hill of Tertre de Fronsac. Perfectly positioned, the plots face south/south-east and the vines are planted in siliceous clay soil over a layer of crasse de fer (iron oxide).

Using traditional, temperature-regulated wine-making methods, the juice is extracted very gently to ensure that the wine preserves all its aromas. Maceration lasts for three weeks. The wine is then aged for up to two years in oak barrels.
