Bordeaux Supérieur

Bordeaux Supérieur appellation is one of the seven regional appellation that can be used throughout the whole wine-growing region of Bordeaux.

To claim to be in the appellation, the wines must meet high qualitative criteria, even more rigorous than those of Bordeaux appellation.

Both red and white wines are producted in the appellation: representing 12 000 ha for red vines producing around 500 000 hl per year, for only 50 ha for white vines producing around 2 000 hl per year.

For reds, three main grape varieties are used: Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The red wines produced are more powerful and complex than Bordeaux. 

Whites are a blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Gris. The white wines produced are mellow, more aromatic, more concentrated and have a light and refreshing mouth.

Bordeaux Supérieur appellation covers the entire Bordeaux area that has a great diversity of soils and terroirs.
