Villa Bel-Air displays a deep colour and an attractive nose with aromas of red fruits and violets mingled with delicate woody notes. The palate revealing gorgeous ripe tannins coupled with toasty and mocha nuances. The finish is ample and well rounded, with a flavour of liquorice. Already tasting delightful, this is a wine that would benefit from aging.
Located in the central part of the Graves appellation, Château Villa Bel-Air is perched at the top of a gently sloping, gravelly hillside with an ideal microclimate for vine growing. Chateau Villa Bel Air is owned by Jean-Michel Cazes of the famed Chateau Lynch Bages in 1988. Improvements to the Chateau were quickly made once Jean-Michel was in charge and today Chateau Villa Bel Air is one of the best value White Bordeaux you can find.
The colour and tannins of the wine are delicately extracted by employing traditional vinification methods and long maceration. The resulting wine combines power and refinement. It exhibits a deep purple-crimson robe, a nose of violets and ripe red fruits with hints of vanilla oak.
