Pierre Gauthier/Domaine du Bel Air, 2012 Bourgueil, Grand Mont
From one of the most prized vineyard in Bourgueil, this old vine cuvée has it all. Aged in 100% new oak 600 liter barrels.
Beautiful layered fruit with ripe, firm tannins. A nose of coffee, blueberries and cedar lead into a wine that has perfect balance. Cool fruit flavors and great length make this a wine that drinks well now, but really wants 10 years in the cellar to reach its prime.
