Chateau Bel Air Bordeaux AC (France) LCBO# 665430   Find Store or Order Online

This Château is located in the charming village of Blasimon, which has several interesting features: a central square with arcades, a dolmen and standing stone, and the spring where an underground river comes to the surface. Above all, it has one of the loveliest Romanesque complexes in the Gironde, a 12th and 13th century Benedictine abbey. This estate dates back to those far-off days, when the monks cleared the forest to plant vineyards.

TASTING NOTES: Lovely, brilliant, deep, youthful, ruby-red colour.  Attractive green-pepper nose, with meaty and forest floor overtones.  Full-bodied on the palate with soft tannins, jammy blackcurrant aromas, and a pleasant, spicy finish.  Great with grilled red meat, beef stew, braised ham, and medium flavoured cheeses.
