2016 Château Bel Air la Royère  (Blaye) 88

Medium bodied, forward, spicy, dark red fruits, earth and thyme, with a juicy finish is what you find here. What makes this wine unique is the large portion of Malbec in the blend, that is often close to 50%. 88 Points

2005 Château Bel Air la Royère  (Blaye) 88

This fully mature, medium bodied, round textured wine, with its sweet, earthy, dark red fruits, spice, licorice, smoke and tobacco characteristics needs to be drunk up over the next few years before the fruit slides away. This is an interesting wine as it has one of the highest percentages of old vine Malbec in Bordeaux with about 45% of it in the blend. 88 Points
