Château Bel Air La Perrière is a small property on some of the highest ground in all Bordeaux. It lies in the Entre Deux Mers, a subregion renowned for its excellent value clarets and its crisp dry whites too. Viviane and François Valguayret run the estate, which has been in the same family since 1864. They hope their son, Jérôme, a trained oenologist will join them soon. Using pure Merlot from their well drained chalky clay soils, this red is already very appealing. It's from 2019, described as a 'miracle' vintage as it was free from frost and mildew and the summer was long and hot, with rain at critical moments. You'll taste that excellence in the lovely ripeness and depth of fruit. It's still young, so decant before serving.
