In the heart of the Lussac Saint-Emilion appellation, Château Bel-Air comprises 30 unbroken hectares, including 21 hectares of vines. In 1978, Jean-Noël Roi took over the estate which had been in his family for over a century. The vineyard stands on a wide plateau of clay with areas of silica gravel, with a subsoil of clay and iron pan.
The vines are, on average, 35 years old, a good age for producing well balanced wines.
The grapes are harvested only when they are fully ripe, as the quality of the aromas and the later development of the tannins depend on it. Unending watchfulness, constant questioning, nothing left to chance, every act and gesture honed to perfection – this is how a great wine is born. This care and attention has brought Chateau Bel Air recognition across the globe.View Importer
