"Displays a dusty frame and grilled herb accents to the core of plum and blackberry fruit. A hint of chalk flashes on the finish." Barrel Tasting

First references to Château Bel Air are found in the 15th century. The

wine history. After several years of disputes, this "cru" was divided.

facing the Gironde River, is located on a rich soil, which routinely
gives generous character, intensity of fruit, and good color to the
wine.

and round tannins. The finish is persistent, on the fruit with wood and
vanilla notes.
