Fruité fin et subtil. Parfaite continuité nez-bouche. Corps élancé, finement articulé, au tanin fruité. Jolie finale. 88-90/20
Soft, open-knit and sensual in the glass, the 2015 Bel-Air Jean & Gabriel is terrific. Plump fruit and silky, plush tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. Drink this pleasant, fruity Lussac Saint-Émilion over the next few years. The blend is 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc.
A direct, toasty style, with a blast of plum and cassis fruit framed by roasted vanilla notes on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 2,000 cases made. –JM
The Bel-Air 2015 Cuvée Jean & Gabriel has a ripe orange sorbet and candied red cherry-scented bouquet that you might well mistake with a Beaujolais. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, plenty of toasty black fruit with a pinch of white pepper toward the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2018 - 2022.
"Super Bordeaux". Finesse et caractère, sans aucune note de surmaturité. 15-16/20
