About Château Recougne

Château Recougne has produced wine for more than 400 years, and has been recognized for nearly as long for producing outstanding wine – its name is said to have come from King Henri IV in the early 17th century, in “recognition” of the quality of its wine.

The Château Recougne vineyard is situated on slopes of Fronsac, 5 kilometers away from Pomerol.

The Milhade family purchased the estate in the early 1950s, and Recougne has become their flagship estate, producing quintessential pure Bordeaux each vintage – classic “claret” in the best sense of the word.

Robert M. Parker Jr. called Château Recougne “….the best Bordeaux Supérieur money can buy.”
