Château Bel-Air

The winery is located in the commune of Saint-Julien or the area of the same name in the Médoc (Bordeaux). It should not be confused with Château Belair (renamed Château Belair-Monange in 2008) in Saint-Émilion. In the Bordeaux classification according to the old system, which is no longer valid, it was last classified as "Cru Bourgeois" in 2003. It was purchased in 1980 by the former mayor of Saint-Julien Henri Martin (+1991) and managed together with Château Gloria under the name "Domaines Henri Martin". Since his death, the entire estate has been managed by his son-in-law Jean-Louis Triaud. The vineyards cover 37 hectares in three separate locations, planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (65%) and Merlot (35%). The long-lasting red wine matures in barriques.
