Château Bel Air - Cuvée Tradition

picture of bottle of wine

This wine has a golden color and a characteristic nose which combines notes of exotic fruits, wax, toast and spices. On the palate it is generous, with a smooth texture and classic "botrytis" notes. Displays a good balance of acidity and sugar and retains its sucrosité without being cloying.
