Nose

Very beautiful aromatic intensity with notes of citrus, white peach and exotic fruits.

Palate

After the freshness, the wine reveals a beautiful roundness and persistence on the palate given by the oak barrel aging (on fine lees).

Growing Conditions

A very rainy spring quickly gave way to a hot and dry summer. The high rainfall early in the season helped to maintain high water reserves for the rest of the summer through to the harvest, which took place from 1st to 12th September 2018. This very beautiful 2018 vintage was marked by unusual and beneficial weather conditions that resulted in a healthy, perfectly ripe harvest, endowing the wine of Villa Bel-Air with all its aromatic potential and quality.
