Chateau Villa Bel-Air 2003

89 points

Graves, Bordeaux. 13%

At it’s heart this seems a simple wine with almost commercial flavours but it has gained surprising complexity, as I’ve encountered with a number of the 2003s – a very odd vintage that produced wines that age far earlier than usual, but in a good way. Drink them up – they have turned out in a surprising way and better than expected.
