More about Bordeaux Supérieur
Bordeaux Superieur is designation that requires a higher level of alcohol than basic Bordeaux AC. Bordeaux Superieur wines are aged for longer in oak barrels and are produced from older vines. They also, theoretically, offer better ageing potential, more complex due to lower yield dictated by the Superieur production conditions.
Located in the Saint Emilion area this wine is a Merlot blend aged partially in barrel. 80% merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Bright ruby color. Nose of berries, plum with dark cherry, leather and oak. Palate is very soft with dark cherry, cranberry, and currant fruits. The wine is smooth, velvety on the palate, well balanced, tanins are soft finishing the wine with good length. Over all a nice Bordeaux, a great buy.A delicious wine for every occasion. - Jean Bernard Baudron
