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."|

Château Larrivaux is one of our top picks when searching for an entry-level Cru Bourgeois. The estate has been transmitted from women to women since the 15th century and is now managed by Bérangère Tesseron, who keeps the family tradition of high quality, affordable wines. The high proportion of Merlot (61%) makes it a delicious, fruity and velvety wine...
Clos Floridène is the flagship wine of Denis Dubourdieu, famous winemaker and THE oenology professor in Bordeaux, and his wife Florence. Family domain created in 1982 (the name Floridène comes from the contraction of Florence and Denis), it is located in the South of the Graves appellation and is famous for fair price and great quality. This 2011 is...
Château Cambon la Pelouse is another top choice Cru Bourgeois, praised by wine critics like Jancis Robinson or Robert Parker (Consistently one of my “best buy” choices). The vineyard is one of the oldest in Médoc and was replanted in 1976. The winery was renovated in the 1990's by its new owner, Jean-Pierre Marie, to get the most of its exceptional...
A family property for four generations, the vineyard has been managed by Christophe Chapron since 1992. The winery was expanded in 2011 alongside a gradual move towards organic farming, and wines have regularly been awarded medals at various competitions. Profound aromas of cherry, leather and coffee pave the way to a well-rounded palate and a spicy...
Chateau Moulin de Launay is very much a family estate. This dry white is the main focus of the 4th generation of the Greffier family, representing over 90% of the production. Thanks to a delicate balance of different grape varieties - Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle - it boasts attractive fruit, and a finesse we really appreciate. A jolly good...
Médoc is an appellation where wines can be fantastic, but you need to pick wisely - just this one, for example. With nearly half of Cabernet Sauvignon, we loved its great flavours of concentrated black fruit, the big volume, some sweet spices and the mellow finish - its proximity with Saint-Estephe may certainly explain it! A brilliant Médoc from Château...
