2015 Bel-Air, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1260603 94-95 points James Suckling

 Lots of black olive, blackberry and stone aromas and flavors. Full and savory. Big wine. This is a crazy small producer you should find out about. Excellent terrior in Pomerol.  (3/2016)

88-90 points Vinous

 The 2015 Bel-Air (Pomerol) offers notable breadth and power, but also has enough freshness to balance things out. The flavors are dark, bold and incisive throughout. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, mocha, torrefaction, spice, new leather and menthol all meld together in a sumptuous, racy Pomerol that will drink well early. Frédéric Massie and Romain Bocchio are the consulting winemakers. (AG)  (4/2016)

A great value from Pomerol. We discovered a few older vintages of this wine in 2015. Now for the first time we tasted the new wine from barrel. Tons of black raspberry fruit with chocolate nuances. Spicy-it is about 1/10th the price of its neighbor Trotanoy. A must buy.
Drink from 2017 to 2027

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
