Bordeaux Supérieur is one of the largest appellations in Bordeaux, in which it is difficult to pick the right wine - and Supérieur does not always mean better! Luckily we have done all the hard work for you and eventually found one of the best value wines in the area: Château Mirambeau Papin, a family owned vineyard North of Bordeaux. The 2012 vintage has everything of a great Bordeaux, deep black fruit, spices and animal aromas, a round and supple mouth and well integrated tannins. No wonder why it's one of the Guide Hachette's favourites in its category! Definitely one of ours as well...

|What experts say|
2* + "Coup de Coeur" (Favourite)
"Nose is as deep as the colour, almost black: aromas of black and red fruits in marmalade, wooden notes suggesting warm hearth and spices. Straight on the attack, the mouth is full, smooth, generous and supported by ripe, soft tannins with notes of cocoa. Generosity and finesse: jury is conquered."
|15/20. "Dense, concentrated, elegant, the palate has well restrained tannins ending on a round fruity and oaky finish."|
