|About the Bordeaux Supérieur Appellation:
Bordeaux Supérieur wines are produced from selected vineyard plots and older vines. As a result, they tend to be more complex and have better ageing potential. This regional appellation has even stricter production norms that the Bordeaux Appellation: smaller yields of 50 hL/ha, and minimum ageing of 12 months before being sold. Their aromatic register is typical of Bordeaux, including fruit (cherry, raspberry, and blackcurrant) and floral aromas (violet), occasionally offering more complex aromas such as licorice, cedar, dried plum, or rose. Overall, Bordeaux Supérieur wines are concentrated, complex, and powerful, with structured tannins. Although they may be consumed young, their powerful tannins impart a greater ageing potential.
