Ratings and Tasting Notes:(AG=88-91) The 2014 Bel-Air-Ouy comes across as a bit compact and clenched, with good persistence, but less in the way of mid-palate generosity. Smoke, tobacco and grilled herbs add nuance, but the 2014 remains compressed and not especially generous. (JS=88-89) Fresh and clean with bright fruits, minerals and spices. Medium body, clean finish. (WA=87-89) The Château Bel-Air-Ouÿ 2014, essentially the third wine of Valandraud, has a broad, quite voluminous bouquet with vivacious blueberries and blackberries. There is an attractive sense of purity here, quite floral and engaging. The palate is medium-bodied and fleshy on the entry, the acidity pointed and sharp leading to a brisk, punchy finish that should mellow throughout its barrel maturation. Fine.
