    Wine of the Week 19 – a superior Bordeaux Supérieur

    Vineyards in Entre-Deux-Mers. I’m not a great one for the cheaper end of Bordeaux, the sort of wine that was described as ‘luncheon claret’ when I joined the wine trade. Red Bordeaux more than any other type of wine really ought to make you stop, think and smile. Claret – any red Bordeaux – can be the most thought provoking, elegant and refined wines in the world, but of co ...
