Château Bel Air Marquis d'Aligre is the last remnant of a vanished era for Bordeaux. Its owner, Jean-Pierre Boyer has been in charge for almost seventy years, and can still remember helping his father produce the legendary 1947. In all that time, almost nothing has changed here, and most remarkably of all the wine is still bottle aged for years before being released only when it's ready to drink - around twenty years after the harvest. The estate consists of fifty hectares in Margaux, but only thirteen are planted, and eight of those are leased to illustrious neighbours. That leaves five to be worked by Jean-Pierre and one trusted employee. The wines are seriously complex, old-school Bordeaux, aged in cement vats and in bottle (no oak) and built to last for decades.

Aged three years in cement, before being fined and bottled (unfiltered). Then aged in bottle for many years until deemed ready.
