Bordeaux Supérieur 2016

The Château de Parenchère Bordeaux Supérieur is the classic cuvée of the estate. Sourced from 25 year old vines, the tannic structure is present yet very soft while the red fruit aromas remain pleasantly intense. This wine is made by and for Bordeaux lovers.

Tasting Notes

An intense ruby color, the Château de Parenchère Bordeaux Supérieur is full and fleshy with a strong underlying structure. It displays intense red fruit aromas of cassis and black cherry with elegantly soft tannins. There is a great balance between the ripe fruit expression and the wine’s freshness.

Food Pairing

Perfect with grilled tenderloin and garlic potatoes.
