  Château Bel Air Lagrave

Château Bel Air Lagrave, Moulis en Medoc

Contains Sulphites.

Appellation: Moulis

Moulis is situated right in the heart of The Medoc, however, it rather lacks the prestige of more distinguished Medoc communes of Pauillac, St Julien and Margaux. The wines are dominated by Cabernet and Merlot, with a small area given to Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. In great vintages, these wines can offer exceptional value and great aging potential. Chasse Spleen and Poujeaux are two estates from this commune that have gained considerable notoriety.

Grape Blend: Cab. Sauvignon | Merlot | Petit Verdot

The stock left bank Bordeaux blend also used to good affect in the New World. Cabernet's, acidic, tannic complex qualities marry ideally with Merlot's sweet, softy flesh characteristics, with Malbec adding extra smoky, earthy complexity. Also experimented with in parts of Napa too, such as at Dominus and Cain Five.
