Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

CHÂTEAU CHEVROL BEL AIR
Situated in the heart of the Lussac Saint-Emilion appellation, Château Bel-Air radiates from its single vineyard.
- Terroir: This 21-hectare estate lies on a clay plateau with a presence of gravel and a subsoil composed of iron and clay.
- Viticulture: The vines are on average 35 years old with 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are harvested when they have reached ideal ripeness.
- Vinification: Vatting lasts several weeks in thermo-regulated vats and is preceded by traditional maturation in oak barrels. The wines are bottled on average 18 months after the harvest.
