Château Belair 2005 Red (Saint-Émilion)
Pascal Dalbeck has triumphed with this impressive wine, very concentrated and spicy, layering powerful dark fruits. There’s a sense of authority here, from a wine that has all the elements in the right place. Wait at least 10 years.
Château Belair 2004 Red (Saint-Émilion)
A big, ripe, fruity wine, backed up with firm tannins. The structure is impressive, giving smoky flavors and layers of new wood. It is rich and potentially long-lasting. Under the inspired control of Pascal Dalbeck, Belair is fully living up to its classed growth status.

This is a dark wine, perhaps more elegant than powerful. The currant fruit flavors drive through with prominent acidity, trailing tight tannins and smoky wood. More weight would have been welcome.
