Chateau Bel Air

In 1980, Henri Martin became the owner of the estate. The vineyard,
facing the Gironde River, is located on a rich soil, which routinely
gives generous character, intensity of fruit, and good color to the
wine. Soil: gravel rises over a mainly blue-clay subsoil.

de Beychevelle. Average age of the vineyard: 30 years Grape varieties planted: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet
