Bel-Air is literally positioned on THE « Première Côte » (first cliff) of Bordeaux, more than 80 meters above the Garonne river, on top of the limestone cliff. This position at the head of the cliff is a unique specificity in the Bordeaux area.
Bel-air has an outstanding point of view at 180 degrees which allows to see the Garonne river, the Landes and even sometimes the Pyrenees on the days with perfect visibility
All the famous terroirs of Bordeaux region are represented at Bel-air: gravel, clay and sand all of it above a limestone cliff.
The slope is steep and exposed to south and south-west. Without barrier from the Atlantic, the vines are taking full advantage of the temperate oceanic climate.
The vineyard is animated by a breeze coming from the ocean, which develops the grapes maturity. The name of the estate, Bel-Air, comes from this fresh and good breeze.
