More about this wine from Bordeaux, France
Bordeaux is just fantastic wine. Full stop. An always welcome party guest. So you might be wondering, "Why’s this Bordeaux a Supérieur?" Glad you asked! As the name suggests, you’re (presumably) going to taste a more elevated version of an everyday Bordeaux because French vintners are required to use a number of higher production standards, like barrel aging their wine at a 12-month minimum. And this fruity, well-balanced Merlot-Cabernet blend by Château Le Calvaire, which benefits from a microclimate with moderate heat, plenty of rain and sunshine, and mild winters, is what a superior Bordeaux is all about.
