Chateau Recougne 2016 Bordeaux Blanc 750ml
This is a brand new white Bordeaux produced in very small quantities by winemaker Marc Milhade of Château Recougne. According to lore, 17th century King Henri IV named the Chateau as such in "recognition" of the quality of their wines. Over 400 years later, young winemakers like Milhade are using a blend of traditional and new "green" techniques. On the nose, aromas of fresh grapefruit and green apple with hints of minerality. More soft citrus flavours, pear and white grapefruit on the palate, with hints of herbs, white flowers, and wet stone. Bright acidity balances well with the lighter body and smooth texture. Crisp finish. Pair with chicken pot pie and crispy brussel sprouts.
