Bordeaux Supérieur

This post is special is a special one. I needed special guests in order to do it.

This is wine is also not sold in Taiwan, just like CASTELMAURE, it was brought directly from France. And the thing is, French wines are a piece of art. There is nothing simple about them and when done properly, they are an adventure for one’s senses.  This beauty was not the exception.

Dark beautiful ruby and strong steady smell. High in tannin but well balance so that it agrees with your paladar. With many different layers so that you can feel the different grapes and fruits of the Bordeaux region. Lovely!

Fruitiness 3.3/5

Sourness : 3.8/5

Tannin 4.3/5

Style: Medium

Body  6.5/10

 

[Note: Fruitiness, sourness and tannin, are a red wine characteristics, they do not define the quality of a wine]

Found in: France

Overall SunShower ranking

4 / 5

The only reason I have to rate this awesomeness a little harsh, is because I know that France has higher standards. For Taiwan, I would rate it about 4.6/5, but according to GG, who kindly shared it with me and Grexxen, it is about a 4/5.

Cuvée – La Cuvée Mythique

I was good, it was satisfying, it was mystifying. With a dark steady color and cranberry hues.

This Cuveé was the appointed companion for watching the newest Pirates of the Caribbean. And just like the movie, it left us with a satisfying finish, one of those where not only the taste feels good but also the experience
