A charming wine, full of ripe plum and blueberry fruit, supported by toasty oak. Ample-textured, with juicy fruit balanced by firm tannins and great structure. Vineyards to the north of Saint Émilion are situated on a calcareous plateau that overlooks the Dordogne valley. The soils of Puisseguin Saint Émilion can be distinguished by their especially high lime content. The 8.34 hectare Bel-Air vineyard is owned by the Dubard family of Bergerac. The 'satellite' areas of Lussac and Puisseguin produce wines that are virtually impossible to tell apart from Saint Émilion proper, and are frequently exceptional value for money. Merlot - 90%, Cabernet Franc - 10%
Food Matching: Rib-eye grilled steaks, roasted meat, cheddar cheese and other mature cheeses.

Viticulture The vineyard consist of 33 year old vines planted at a density of 5500 vines per hectare, on clay limestone and gravel soils. The East to West facing vineyards produce yields of up to 49 hl/ha. Grapes are machine harvested in September. Vinification Grapes are double manually sorted in both vineyard and winery, then subsequently destemmed but not crushed, going through a brief period of maceration on its skins before being pneumatically pressed. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, and the wine goes through further maceration post fermentation. The wine is then matured in French 225L oak barrels for 15 months, of which 80% was new oak.
