Chateau Recougne Bordeaux Superieur 2012


SKU 87243821005


At harvest, the grapes are 100% destemmed and crushed before being placed in temperature controlled vats. Prior to fermentation, approximately 20% of the juice in each vat is siphoned off in order to increase the skin-to-juice ratio (this juice is then used to make rosé wine). Natural yeasts trigger fermentation and a twice daily regimen of pumping the juice over the skins begins remontage. The wine is racked every 3 months and therefore only needs a light filtration. Final blending and bottling takes place 18 months after harvest.

Wine EnthusiastSpicy, ripe and fruity, this wine has enough structure to give shape to the broad black fruits that are the stars. A smoky element comes from just the right amount of wood aging. Drink from 2017.
