Château Belair 2001 (Dubois-Challon) 75cl
Premier Grand Cru Classé.
80% Merlot, Cabernet Franc 20%.
18 to 26 months of barrel aging.
Drink better 5 to 15 years.
Extremely tannic, with a dark plum color. Take notes of color from the land, minerals, and a gentle touch of cherries. The mouthfeel is deep and tannic. The tannins seem totally disproportionate high for the amount of extract and concentration.
