      Tasting Notes
      Château de Bel-Air 2016, 75cl

      The property today has an area of 15.6 hectares of single rowed vines planted between 6000 and 6500 feet per hectare, the grape variety is representative of the right bank: 73% of Merlot, 19% of Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard of
      Château de Bel-Air is located on a small hill that borders the Barbanne valley, a small stream separating Bel-Air from Pomerol. This "rump" consists entirely of Quaternary alluvial formations, which is divided into three distinct types of soils.

      "A new acquisition for Jean-Pierre Moueix. Real substance on the nose – depth and some of the peppery character I'm finding in this vintage. Sweet, luscious palate with slightly less undertow than is promised on the nose. Very slightly green on the finish.
      16 points."
      (Jancis Robinson, JR Purple Pages, April 2017)

      "Blended of 73% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, the medium garnet-purple colored 2016 de Bel-Air gives up a very fruity nose of crushed plums, kirsch and black cherry compote with hints of potpourri, tilled soil and fallen leaves. Medium-bodied, the palate is laden with juicy plums and cherry flavors plus a pleasant chewy texture, finishing on a savory note. Drink 2019 - 2031.
      91 points."
      (Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate, November 2018)
