An impressive Pomerol, full bodied for sure, but it is never heavy. In fact it has a quite lifted nose. It is balanced and absolutely enjoyable now.

This Pomerol is nuanced and expansive, with very spicy aromatics trailed by sage and Ylang Ylang. The palate blooms with ripe blueberry and blackberry, and the tannin structure is soft and fine. The 2015 Bel Air Pomerol is a wine that can absolutely be enjoyed tonight, but will also age beautifully for at least a decade.

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.
