Chateau Bel Air Haut-Medoc 2007

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Black fruits, sweet tobacco and earthy flavors are found in this full-bodied Left Bank red. Decant this hearty wine to serve with roasts and beef stews.

A sweet perfume of black fruits intermixed with licorice and vanilla lead the bouquet, offering great fruit purity with a concentrated finish. The flavors of dark, ripe cherries and rich plums makes it a good match with skirt steaks, hand-formed sirloin burgers with melted American cheddar, and thin crust pizza topped with mozzarella, thinly sliced veal sausage and green peppers.

You've tasted it twice and think "Wow! She really splurged on this wine" - au contraire, Pierre. For under $10 you may have dark ruby color, perfumey Cabernet Franc on the nose, clean soft entry with deep full-bodied cherry and blackberry and cinnamon spice. Fine tannins and a fine price. Highly recommended.

Value from 2000! This easy drinker feels rich and rounded on a medium bodied frame. Mild tannins and good dark berry flavors match well with a prime cut of beef.

This has some lively and interesting fruit aromas and a touch of oak. The style is rich and soft with good acidity and firm tannins. The wine is nicely textured, with dark fruit and a touch of spice in the finish. The wines of the 2005 vintage are coming into their peak and are very approachable now. Serve this wine with a hearty beef stew or French onion soup.

Proof that a great winemaker can make delicious wines even in less than celebrated vintages, this is classically styled, with balance and structure at the forefront. Full-flavored, with lots of earth and spice, firm tannins and a long, dry finish. Best with hearty meat and vegetable dishes, especially game meats.
