CHÂTEAU BEL-AIR 2015 AC Pomerol
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. Very deep intense ruby colour. Expansive, complex, intense, slightly maturing, ripe Damson plum nose with some minerality and refined, toasty-cedary notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, harmonious, dense, ripe dark plum flavours with some hints of cassis and a touch of dark chocolate followed up by a lingering, great acidity, elegant and yet extracty, somewhat cedary finish. It would be excellent with a rare steak and/or roast beef. Surprisingly approachable although it will evolve nicely over the next decade. This great Pomerol, at a surprisingly reasonable price, is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon with 14% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L04.17 on the back label. Has not appeared in Vintages before. CSPC 11839
