Château Gromel Bel Air was founded in 1855. The estate and surrounding 27 acres of vineyard are located in Fronsac nearby the famous communes of Pomerol and St. Émillion. Fronsac’s higher altitude vineyards composed of limestone, chalk, and clay produce particularly robust Merlot-based red wines. Cabernet Sauvignon only thrives in select areas on the right bank of the Gironde River and a special parcel of the estate’s vineyards are dedicated to this varietal which provides added structure and freshness to the blend. Château Gromel Bel Air is consistently made with great care and its affordability exemplifies the underrated potential of the area. It is aromatic, fruity and spicy, with fine balance and moderate structure.
