Tasting Notes

This wine has a deep, silky appearance with hints of purple, and a bouquet opening up into beautiful red fruit and spice notes.
It is fresh and well-balanced on the palate, revealing rounded, silky tannins, which characterizes Villa Bel Air red wines.
This wine, perfectly suitable for ageing, is already very enjoyable to drink.

Château Villa Bel-Air

Château Villa Bel-Air is located in Saint Morillon in the heart of the «Graves»
appellation. This 18th century property was bought in 1988 by Jean-Michel Cazes and his family. From this date, the vineyards and the technical installations have been completely restructured. Advanced techniques are implemented in the renewed vines but the spirit in which they are tended perpetuate ancestral traditions. Today, Chateau Villa Bel-Air produces red and white wines which perfectly illustrate the finesse and complexity of Grave wines.

The terroir

The property is perched on a magnificent gravel brow. The soil is composed of
Garonne gravel, and lies on a subsoil base of clay-limestone, partly ferruginous.
The terroir also benefits from an advantageous micro-climate: the surrounding pine forests protect it from bad weather, and the proximity of the Garonne River mitigates both extreme heat and excess humidity.
