Bordeaux Red Blends from Medoc, Bordeaux, France (Domaines Joel Irigaray)
55% cabernet sauvignon
Opened 7 Oct 2017
Hailing from the St. Emilion area on the right bank of the Gironde, Chateau Bel Air, Joel Irigaray Domaines, is a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. St. Emilion is blessed with wonderful mix of vine growing soils of gravel, clays and limestone, coupled with an oceanic climate of hot summers, and warm autumns, with just the right amount of rain when needed. The vineyards around St. Emilion and the Bordeaux region date back to at least the Roman plantings in the 2nd century AD; proving that good things do last.
A good, solid, dark, purple to ruby-red wine, redolent of cherry fruits, smooth tannins and acidity. Serve with a juicy rib-eye and enjoy its balanced and long finish.
A good wine.
