Château Bel Air-Marquis d´Aligre is located in Soussans, in the town of Margaux in the Bordeaux wine region. In all the classifications of the 17th and 18th centuries, the wine of Château Bel Air-Marquis d'Aligre was considered one of the best Seconds Crus. It was not classified in 1855 because the Marquis d'Aligre, who owned it, reserved it for his friends and therefore did not go through the brokers who developed this classification. However, in 1932 during the first classification of the Crus Bourgeois, it was one of the few to be classified “Grand Cru Exceptionnel” (which brought together the notorious failures of the Classification of 1855) and this mention still appears on its label. The Boyer family has managed the vineyard with rigor for around 50 years. Today, Jean-Pierre Boyer is in charge of the 13 hectares.
