Tasting Note:

Belair Monange, which now incorporates the vineyards of Magdelaine continues to impress. Anyone who feared that the addition of Magdelaine would in some way detract, need not worry. As one would expect from the most auspicious south facing limestone slopes of the Cote, the fruit is high toned, intense and bursting with mineral complexity. Bitter sweet on the mid-palate, with notes of sanguine orange, cherry liqueur and tayberries, this sings like a soprano. Taut, focussed and composed, this is a thoroughly gourmand wine that proves that you don't need over-ripe fruit and 15% of alcohol to make a spectacular St Emilion. Bravo.
