Château Bel Air, Sainte-Croix-du-Mont
This estate covers 25 hectares of the Sainte-Croix-du-Mont terroir and produces wines of this well-known appellation, however it also includes other nearby parcels which are classified under other Bordeaux appellations. Impressively the estate has been farmed by ten generations of the Méric family! Production is small by today's standards, just 10,000 bottles of the Bordeaux sec, which marks a new dawn for this AOC for us - affordable yet both complex and classy. The sweet AOC Sainte-Croix-du-Mont is a worthy stablemate and also a joy to drink.
