Bordeaux Superieur has a higher minimum alcohol content than Bordeaux AC by about half a degree. Frequently (though not always), the wines are in fact better and can improve over the course of a year or two.

  • Had several wines from this region while in France, and particularly enjoyed the Chateau Saint Antoine 2005 vintage. Fruitier than some from the region but mellow as well. Still experimenting with these wines . .
