Bel Air Ortet
Real craftsmanship is accomplished in this tiny vineyard... Step by step, on this unique terroir, is it possible to produce a wine of truly rare power and generosity? Each new vintage delivers a great classic. The vineyard of Château Bel-Air Ortet, situated up against the village of Saint-Estèphe, benefits from an essentially gravely and remarkably well-drained sub-soil. Its wines with their deep tannins are full-bodied and harmonious. As with all the truly great wines from Saint-Estèphe, a few years in the cellar will enhance all their outstanding qualities.
Millesime 2016: Intense colour; very complex nose with slightly smoky vanilla notes. The palate reveals roasted aromas (coffee, cocoa) and dense tannins from fully ripened grapes. A very generous, well-balanced wine. Enjoy with red and white meat, poultry and also with soft cheese
