Futures 2015: Appellation Bordeaux Supérieur

AOC Bordeaux Supérior reaches across all Bordelais vineyards, the same area as the general appellation of Bordeaux. However, wines must meet more stringent requirements order to receive the designation. For example, the vines used in the production must be older than the vines used for Bordeaux AOC.

The diversity of soil types reflects the large size of the region of production. The principal cépages are cabernet sauvignon and merlot, and the overwhelming majority of Bordeaux Supérior is red wine. The AOC also produces a small amount of sweet white wine. The strong tannic structure of the red wines give them potential for longer ageing.

2015 in Bordeaux Supérior:

Spotlight on the 2015 vintage: 2015 in Bordeaux started with an unusually mild spring. May, June and July subsequently were warm and dry, allowing the vines to grow rapidly. An even and consistent véraison occurred in early August. Autumn saw cooler, damp weather, helping build aromatic complexity and power in the grapes before harvest. The highly-anticipated vintage promises to be one for the ages.
