Château Recougne has produced wine for more than 400 years. Its name is said to have come from King Henry IV in the early 17th century, in
“recognition” of the quality of its wine.
Selection is performed in the vineyard through green-harvesting, and the grapes are mostly destemmed, with 10-15% remaining as whole cluster for added structure. Fermentation takes place in traditional cement vats.
Maturation Mode & Time:
15 months aging in large vessels (no oak barrel) before bottling with minimal filtration.
