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.

  • 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

  • Chateau Recougne Bordeaux Superieur 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Aromas of dark fruit, fig, earth, and tobacco, full bodied, tart cherries, oak, and leathery mouth feel. Pleasant robust tannins, lingering finish. Excellent value. Read More

  • Chateau Gromel Bel Air Bordeaux Superieur 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A bit stinky on the nose with aromas of pencil shavings and leather framing a core of spicy black fruit all bathed in vanilla tinged cedary oak. Smooth and rich up front, this thins out a bit on the palate revealing delicate woodsy black currant fruit that has a slight dried plum/cocoa cast to it. The finish is long if dry and while there some ... Read More

  • Chateau Roc de Levraut Bordeaux Superieur 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy on the nose and slightly vegetal with hints of beetroot and older wood laying under sassafras laced aromas of black cherry and plum with just a hint of mocha. Smooth and moderately rich in the mouth, this retains an austere quality in the mouth though there is no shortage of fruit. Black plums and black currants are wrapped up with subtl... Read More

  • Grand Theatre Bordeaux Superieur 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I tasted a 2009 Grand Theatre few nights ago. You may not get a correct impression at first. But its unique taste starts growing on you. It is a well-balanced wine with a nice bouquet and flavor. I wish I knew if this wine could age. Read More
