Château Villa Bel-Air Graves Red 2016

21,90 €

Villa Bel-Air displays a deep colour and an attractive nose with aromas of red fruits and violets mingled with roasted and woody notes. The attack is solid, the palate revealing gorgeous ripe tannins, with toasty and mocha nuances. The finish is ample and well rounded, with a flavour of liquorice.

Château Villa Bel-Air is located in Saint Morillon in the heart of the «Graves» appellation. This 18th century property was bought in 1988 by Jean-Michel Cazes and his family. From this date, the vineyards and the technical installations have been completely restructured. Advanced techniques are implemented in the renewed vines but the spirit in which they are tended perpetuate ancestral traditions. Today Chateau Villa Bel-Air produces red and white wines which perfectly illustrate the finesse and complexity of Grave wines.
