CH BEL AIR Bordeaux Blanc 2019 75cl
Château Bel Air has been owned and operated for 10 generations by the Méric family. The estate covers 25 hectares of the Sainte-Croix-du-Mont terroir and produces wines of this lesser-known appellation which has been gaining attention recently for the quality and value of its sweet wines. However it also includes other nearby parcels which are classified under other Bordeaux appellations, like this dry white.
The great thing about less fashionable appellations is that you can find great value gems like this that would be twice the price elsewhere. Limey intensity, tropical fruit and grapefruit with a rich mouthfeel and bags of citrus freshness. An absolute winner.
