A great French value wine for everyday drinking. The 2018 St. Sulpice Bordeaux Superieur has a beautiful ruby red color. The nose and mouth are dominated by notes of ripe black fruits, plums, toast, and spices, followed by a rich, smooth and soft finish.
Made from a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, the Bordeaux Red is typically fragrant, soft, and well balanced. A superior example of its appellation. 75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec. This wine is vinified as if it were a “classified growth”: Each parcel and grape variety is vinified separately. Traditional Bordeaux vinification in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. Alcoholic fermentation for 8 to 10 days at 82 degrees Fahrenheit. Maceration for 3 weeks followed by ageing in French barrels for 12 months before bottling. This approach emphasizes the natural red fruit characters.
Made with the same methods of utmost quality as those used to produce classified growth Bordeaux, Château Saint-Sulpice represents an extraordinary value and rare quality.
