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.

  • Really Big Al  That Bordeaux Superieur should be a good one as it is made by a well respected Chateau in Margaux and has seen the inside of an oak barrel rather than a concrete or stainless steel tank. l have not had it myself though so you must write up a review for it Read More

  • Château Saint-Antoine Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Supérieur Cuvée Etienne 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Barnyard first, black fruit second. I could pick up the licorice and cedar combo which gave me the barnyard feel. Medium red color...I expected much darker. Black plum present, as well. I bought this in France. Read More

  • Jonathan Maltus Labrie Bordeaux Superieur 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A Naked Wines selection:Opens with a bit of ripe plum and cherry, tiny bit of licorice and earth. Medium high tannins and acidity with a long dry finish, Light on its feet but felt too thin to me. Not bad, but hoped for more 'oomph'. Was much improved with food, probably even more so paired with something more appropriate than what I had. Inter... Read More

  • Château Recougne Bordeaux Supérieur 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Nice earthy, blackberry-cassis nose with a hint of caramel and a strangely acetic note. Very Bordeaux, however. On the entry, the flavours are somewhat muted and one-dimensional with a moderately short, steely (mineral-rich) finish. The wine is fully mature with only a little residual tannin. Smooth, elegant; certainly not boring... au contra... Read More

  • Château Tour d'Auron Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Supérieur 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This Bord Sup (as this rank of Bordeaux is flippantly referred to) is well respected and belongs to the same stable as Chateau Recougne - an erstwhile favourite of Robert Parker's. For the low asking price, we get a nice cherry and cedar nose - although earthy and a bit soupy. On the palate there are delicious cherry-vanilla notes with light t... Read More
