Pomerol 2016 - Château Bonalgue Bel Air
Out of stock
The Pomerol vineyard plot of Château Bonalgue Bel Air is less than a hectare in size and came from the Moulinet family, the grandmother of the current owners. The field is located on a cadastral plot called Chemin de Bonalgue very close to the town of Libourne. The soil is clayey-gravel in the middle of a beautiful plateau of very famous vineyards. The grapes on the 35 year old vines are grown organically. They ripen early resulting in the roundness and aromatic power of a fine Pomerol. The Pomerol is ruby red in the glass and the nose is full of ripe fruit like berries and blackberries. On the palate, a popping red fruit salad with strawberry as the base. Full-bodied, creamy, some soft tannins, and pints of bay leaf, pepper, flint and ink. Giga long finish toe! Decant at 18 degrees and enjoy with just about anything with truffle, with grilled eggplants, with a skewer of grilled turkey, beef in a puff pastry crust and with soft firm, or mild blue, cheeses like Livarot, Maroilles or Blue d'Auvergne.
