Belair's incomparable soil and long history are telltale signs that this is indeed a great Bordeaux wine château.

Wine EnthusiastA big, ripe, fruity wine, backed up with firm tannins. The structure is impressive, giving smoky flavors and layers of new wood. It is rich and potentially long-lasting. Under the inspired control of Pascal Dalbeck, Belair is fully living up to its classed growth status.

Wine SpectatorFocused and very clean, with raspberry and blackberry aromas. Full-bodied, yet delicate and reserved, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Balanced. An excellent effort. Best after 2010

Wine AdvocateThe renaissance at Belair begins in 2005, not 2004. Obviously made from underripe fruit, the 2004's herbaceousness, tart acids, narrowly constructed framework, and lack of charm and depth are clearly problematic. This is a wine for masochists.

Robert Parker, June 2007
