Les Hauts de Bel Air
AOC Bordeaux Red
The quality of the terroir and the passion and effort made throughout the year in the vineyard to attain perfect maturity were the key to the success of it very great vintage 2015 of the Bordelais. Hauts de Bel Air 2015 is a perfect illustration of this. It displays a sombre garnet hue with deep purple tints. The intense, vinous nose of red fruit, blackcurrant and blackberry is proof of the quality of the grapes that went into making it. The palate is unctuous and rounded, with a balanced structure characteristic of its terroir but without asperity. A charming and pleasant, mature array of sensations in a wine that is ready for drinking immediately but deserves waiting for a little longer.
Ready for drinking from 2016; can be laid down for several years.
This vintage is garnet-coloured nearly to rim, where deep purple tints are just visible. The powerful but elegant nose is redolent of red and black fruits, especially cherry and blackberry. Smooth tannins wrapped in beautiful creamy extract support a superbly supple palate. Fine aromatic length, a sign of careful winemaking and well-ripened grapes.
Ready for drinking from 2017. Can be laid down for several years.
