Chateau de Bel Air is a wonderful Bordeaux, fruity, earthy and ready to please now.

Mentioned in the Cocks & Feret guides as one of the best wines of the appella- tion as early as 1922, Château de Bel-Air is situated on a sunny plateau that gently slopes southward. The historical quality of its wines and its privileged position, which guarantees the vineyard ideal sun exposure year-round, drew owner Michel de Laet Derache to acquire the property in 2011.

On the nose, Château de Bel-Air presents notes of red fruit and floral aromas; on the palate, a harmonious balance between flesh and tannins means it can be enjoyed after just a few years of cellaring. A delicate wine that is a perfect partner for refined dishes. It can be drunk now or cellared until 2022+.

73% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon.

That is a joy to drink such a pretty Lalande de Pomerol with the freshness you would like to expect and the structure from the clay soils of the area. The wine manages to provide lots of pleasure from now.

Harvest is mechanical, with sorting in the cellar. Each plots are vinified separately in thermo-regulated concrete vats. It matures for 12-14 months in oak barrels (45% new, 45% 1-year barrels, 10% 2-year barrels). The wine growing is  «Culture raisonnée» with soil tilling or cover cropping vine growth management adapted to the climatic conditions.
