Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

Black garnet colour with dark red highlights, brick point. Fairly open nose with notes of plums in brandy, cocoa and ash. Supple and vinous attack, satiny and long tannins, small body, roasted character and empyreumatic notes. Satiny finish, rather full-bodied and powerful.

Features

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.

Domain and appellation

  • Château Bel-Air

    Located at the heart of the Lussac Saint-Emilion, the Bel-Air castle extends over 30 hectares in one piece. 21 of which grow vines. In 1978, Jean-Noël Roi took the property over. Their family owned it for more than a century. In 2004, the property grew with the purchase of 6 hectares of vines in the bordering town of Petit-Palais and Cornemps located in the Bordeaux designation.

    • Terroir: The vineyard is located on a large clay plateau. The sub-soil is composed of clay and iron filth.
       
    • Viticulture: Vines are 36 years old on average. Harvests are done at the total maturity of the grapes. The aromatic quality and the tannins evolutions depend on it.
       
    • Wine-making: The aging lasts 18 months, 50% on tanks, 30% on new barrels and 20% on barrels. 100% of bottling is made at the castle in the month of April of the next year in one homogeneous batch.
