Château de Monrecueil 2009 displays the perfect balance between the best that the Merlot and Cabernet grape varieties have to offer. 2009 was a 10/10 vintage and affordable wines from the vintage have all but disappeared from the market. We were extremely lucky to snap up this wine after a recent trip to Bordeaux. The wine displays gentle tannins and plenty of ripe fruits and exceptional value for money on what is a superb 2009 wine.

About

Château de Monrecueil is the second wine of Château de Belcier, which is recognised as one of the appellation’s gems. The Côtes de Castillon is one of the oldest wine-making areas for Bordeaux wines and is adjacent to Saint Emilion and displays many of the same characteristics. The wine offers a beautiful dark ruby colour, aromas of red fruit and underlying prune, leather or undergrowth and are well rounded and fleshy on the palate, subtly tannic and well balanced.

"The 2009 Ch. de Monrecueil comes from the Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux, an appelation of once humple reputation that's now rivalling St Emilion. 2009 was another 10/10 vintage and this is a deliciously toothsome blend of 70 percent Merlot, 25 percent Cabernet Franc and 5 percent Malbec. It's full-bodied and robust but with gentle tannins and plenty of disarmigly lush ripe fruit." Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
