In contrast to the La Riotte where the bouquet was nicely recovered from the bottling and the palate was agitated the Bel Air was still fairly closed from the recent bottling but the wine had snapped nicely back into focus on the palate. As I observed last year the Taupenots parcel in the premier cru of Bel Air are thirty years of age and these vines are now really starting to hit on all cylinders. The reticent nose on the 2011 offers up scents of red and black cherries gamebirds cocoa nutskins lovely soil tones and a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is back on form after the mise delivering lovely focus and balance in its full-bodied format with ripe tannins tangy acids and a very good core of fruit. This will be lovely. 2021-2050. John Gilman.
