Natalie's Score: 91/100

From Domaine Martin, Château Bel Air Gloria 2016 is a Cru Bourgeois produced from a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with 25% in Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Cru Bourgeois is a quality designation for the Médoc indicating that the wine has been examined and certified as having high enough quality and taste profile to qualify as a Cru Bourgeois. Look for rich aromas and flavours of dark berry, plum, crushed raspberry, fine herbs, toasty oak spice flavours and smoky notes on this bright and full-bodied red from the Bordeaux wine region. Good now, better in 2024 or cellar to 2032.

Food pairings: veal cutlets, pork tenderloin, tri tip beef roast.
