Jean-Marc Lafont - 'Serines' Syrah 2014
Domaine de Bel-Air has a deeply rooted history in Beaujolais dating back almost 180 years. Somewhat poetically, the original estate house of the Domaine is perched on the hill of Bel-Air overlooking the town of Beaujeu, capital of the Beaujolais region. But despite this long history, the destiny of the Domaine dramatically changed in 1986 when Jean-Marc Lafont, current owner with his wife Annick, took over the estate. The Serines cuvée is 100% Syrah, grown on Schist and granitic slopes. Six years old and south facing.
This cuvée boasts lovely red and black fruit aromas with a fine mineral note. The really refined palate is racy, elegant and complex, finishing on great spicy notes. Drink now or up to 2024+. 100% Syrah.
