Château Recougne, Bordeaux Supérieur, Bordeaux, France, 2018
(at WeWork, Waterloo, London SE1, 04 May 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2023
Very respectable entry-level Bordeaux, from an estate situated near to Fronsac on the Right Bank. The château is family owned, and the 100ha vineyard is majority Merlot, with some Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Carmenère completing the mix. Exclusive to Majestic, this is straightforward and well made, with attractive brambly fruit, some cedar spice and a warm generosity. Great value at the mix six price of just under a tenner.
