BORDEAUX SUPÉRIEUR 2019 BY CHÂTEAU PASCAUD
Bordeaux Supérieur 2019 by Château Pascaud is a wonderful example of how much incredible value is lurking around every corner in Bordeaux. Notwithstanding how vast Bordeaux is, it doesn’t make this ’19 Bordeaux Supérieur, at just $23, any less exceptional.
This direct import is a textbook example of why it pays to do your geography homework. The secret here is location! The wine is labelled Bordeaux Supérieur, but the grapes are grown close to, and in some cases, over the border into better known Fronsac. The clay and limestone slopes and microclimatic influences are very similar to the terroir found in nearby Saint Emilion where bottle prices fetch triple digits.
