The Château Saint-Sulpice Bordeaux Rouge is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is vinified as if it were a “classified growth”: complete de-stemming, eight-day fermentation in new temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and aging in vats for several months before bottling. This approach emphasizes the natural red fruit characters. The wine exhibits black cherry, spice and plum notes, with great depth and balance.
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.
