Château de Bel-Air
Decanted for about an hour before serving. This wine was a deep red in the glass. Dark fruit and wood on the nose with a little bit of earth as well. The palate matched the nose with dark fruit flavors and subtle traces of wood. The best part about...

Bordeaux gets a bad rap for several reasons. the top wines are ridiculously expensive. They also require significant time in the cellar to really show their stuff, and the style of these wines has changed over the years, becoming bolder, riper, and to many palates both less fresh and less complex.

I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines. Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times. Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends? These ...

I’m kicking off this year's series on value wines by taking a look at one the regions least commonly associated with value: Bordeaux. Now that’s not because Bordeaux doesn't offer value, it’s just that their value wines get little attention from the media. I’m not sure why that is.

A bit weedy on the nose and sharp with spicy pink peppercorn edges to the astringent red fruit aromas. Softer than expected on entry, with a lovely roundness in the mouth. rather nondescript but at the same time easy to drink with gentle raspberry and blackcurrant flavors.

In the glass, this wine is a translucent bright ruby color, with a nose of soft ripe fruit and a hi... Read More

I just won a bottle of 1999 Chateau Bel Air Pomerol at a game of golf. I had no idea that this was such a valuable item. What would this wine go for on the market today because I can't find it for sale anywhere.
