Tasting Notes

Scent of leather and plums. The most attractive Belair that I have tasted since 1989. Lovely wines with an unaccustomed generosity of ripe rich fruit on the palate, and with a good long lasting structure. Extremely persistent and pure. John Armit - armit 18 points

Reviews & Scores

Bright red-ruby. Black cherry, minerals, spices and a floral note on the pungent nose, plus a suggestion of gamey reduction. Offers a restrained sweetness and very primary, tightly wound flavors of dark berries and pungent minerals. This has very good life and floral lift. Finishes with very fine tannins, harmonious acidity and a lingering flavor of sappy black cherry. The cleanest and most promising young Belair in years. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 88-90 points
