Our online feature this week is the Château Recougne Blanc (Bordeaux, France) – $16.49 , regularly $23.49.

The Milhade family has been landowners and farmers in Bordeaux for three generations and currently own six properties in the right bank regions of Saint-Emilion, Lussac- Saint-Emilion, Lalande-de-Pomerol, and Bordeaux Supérieur. Their wines represent fine value in Bordeaux showcasing the beautiful results that can be achieved by small family owned estates focused on producing terroir driven high quality wines. The wines are marked by wonderful, expressive fruit and retain an authenticity and soulfulness.

Our feature this week is their Château Recougne Blanc, one of the hidden gems in the Milhade family portfolio. The soils and climatic conditions in Bordeaux’s Right Bank are generally best suited to red grapes but the 10 hectare parcel here with its deep clay-limestone soil over and iron-rich clay pan is a perfect setting for Sauvignon Blanc, which forms the backbone for this white.

Its a classic blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon but also some Sauvignon Gris, this cuvée is true to the classic profile of dry, aromatic and refreshing white Bordeaux. The color is a shiny gold, the aromatics are flowers, pink grapefruit and lemon, but also of green apple. There is zest and snap on the palate. Perfect as an aperitif, with fish and chips, fried calamari and seafood of all kinds. Enjoy this great deal!
