Annick & Jean-Marc took over the Domaine de Bel Air in 1985. They make highly expressive wines which are the fruit of a perfect balance between traditional and modern practices. Vineyard & Vinification Note: HVE3 Certified (high environmental value).
Beaujolais Cru wines are unique. Made from the Gamay grape grown on sandy, stony or schistose granite-based soils with no lime, the wines have roundness, depth of flavour and texture that this grape does not produce anywhere else in the world.
Plenty of strawberry and raspberry fruit plus some floral aromas (lilies!) give this Fleurie a lot of charm. On the palate it is quite sleek and drier than the nose suggests, the tannic core quite firm, but only obvious at the long clean finish. Sustainable. Drink or hold. 90 Points, February 2023.
