This week’s W.O.W. is from what is being called the best vintage in Bordeaux since 2010. After a run of difficult vintages and low yields, 2015 was a near perfect growing season. This wine is well-focused and fruity with a silky tannic structure. Grab some now… there is plenty of bang for your buck here!
2015 Château Bel-Air Laclotte Bordeaux
Saint Gervais, Bordeaux, France
The Bel-Air Laclotte is 70% Merlot with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon making up the rest of the blend. Loaded with aromas and flavors of blackberry, raspberry and red plum, it is ideal when paired with grilled veal and beef tenderloin.
