Chateau Belair Haut Medoc, 1990

Chateau Bel Air Haut-Medoc Cru BourgeoisThis is my favorite of three red wines we had for Thanksgiving dinner. Now 28 years of age, it illustrates well the aging potential of red Bordeaux, even from relatively modest appellations.

Some amber tones around the rim, but otherwise no signs of advancing age. Currants, berries, blue flowers. Lead pencil tones on the palate. Long, beautiful finish.
