    TASTING NOTES

    Beautiful profound and brilliant garnet hue. Expressive nose displaying aromas of overripe black berried fruits and violet. The generous, velvety palate is accompanied by elegant tannins imparting fine length. Will already delight any lover of round, expressive wines, but can be left for another 2 to 3 years to leave the wine time to develop elegance and finesse.

    AGEING

    TASTING NOTES

    Sombre, garnet hue with deep purple tints. The charm of this wine lies in its complexity and powerful aromas, with strawberry and blackcurrant dominating more spicy nuances. Generous, round and powerful palate. The wine is made primarily from Merlot, which imparts its typical elegance. The velvety, very mature tannins make this a mouthfilling wine, with a supple, generous finish.

    TASTING NOTES

    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.
