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.

  • Chateau Bolaire Bordeaux Superieur 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A nice Damson Fruit (dark plum) greets the nose on this edition of the well-respected Chateau.The wine is slightly less opaque than 2009, but the palate still meets plenty of tannin and Petit Verdot notes (leather especially) but tempered with lots of black and red fruit such as cherry and blackberry. Some density is lacking despite the tannin ... Read More

  • Chateau Fantin Bordeaux Superieur 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky and sweet on the nose with more than a passing resemblance to fish sauce. Theres some holiday spice here and faint shadings of blackberry fruit but mostly spicy, BBQ spice savoriness. Bright and clean on entry with some early raspberry/not fully ripe strawberry fruit. Medium light bodied with right acids and a nice base of powdery tannins ... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    55% Merlot 45% Cabernet Sauvignon Stemm and a little weedy on the nose with some clay soil tones over candied floral and cherry fruit aromas. This shows some spicy cherry wood tones as well. Cedary though with more spice to them. Smooth on entry with licorice laced black fruits. this is polished but not complex, with rich fruit flavors that are... Read More

  • Chateau Clos Moulin Pontet Bordeaux Superieur 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A little minty at first on the nose then turning attractively fruity with lovely black currant fruit over tobacco and dried thyme notes. Soft, broad and fairly ripe on entry. This firmly medium bodied wine has a bit of spicy oak early on the palate followed by rather rich candied black cherry and strawberry flavors. Tannins are ripe and well int... Read More

  • Chateau de la Cour d'Argent 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Another little gem from the excellent 2010, this wine has a bright cherry nose and a tasty entry of plum, light (ripe) tannin and licorice. This is a fine 2010 for early drinking or keep through 2015. 87 points. Read More

  • 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 . .
