Avec le temps, Château Villa Bel-Air est devenu l'une des valeurs sûres des Graves.
A light savory hint gives way quickly to a pretty stream of cassis and cherry flavors, backed by a light chalky hint on the finish. Pure and charming.—J.M.
Owned by the Cazes family, this is a classic Graves that offers excellent value. The 2016 is a deep, rich ruby colour and attractively rustic in expression. It opens well in the glass, with a good balance of freshness and enticingly ripe plum fruits, kept in place by tannins that offer just the right amount of tension for a wine that is aimed at medium term drinking.
