Natalie's Score: 88/100

A Merlot-dominated red blend with some Cab Franc and Cab Sauv added to the mix. Full-bodied and concentrated with rich dark fruit, cherry, spicy plummy and dried herb flavours on the palate. The wine saw elevage in cement tanks. Pair with roast beef.

Food pairings: lamb cutlets, beef tenderloin, pork shoulder roast.

Reviews and Ratings

Produced by Vignobles Xavier Milhade, Château Recougne Supérieur 2017 is a full-bodied 85% Merlot with the balance in Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc red wine blend from vineyards near the Fronsac wine region in Bordeaux. Fragrant with ripe cherry, sweet herbs and earthy florals on the nose with fresh red and dark berry, red cherry, dried tobacco leaf and baking spice flavours on the palate. The wine saw elevage in cement tanks. Pour with lamb stew. This vintage was awarded Gold at the 2019 Berliner Wein Trophy. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
