Tasting Note:

Belair Monange, like sister property Lafleur Petrus has gone down the road of M&As and now incorporates the vineyards of Magdelaine. 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. There is a real sense of terroir here and a gourmand quality that is most alluring. Initially the griotte liqueur flavours take centre stage, but this is multi-layered with intricate fine detail. Although this is ethereal and dances over the palate, there is real substance here and a succulence on the mid-palate that coats and impresses. As ever, this is a real wine with a sense of place, which proves that you don't need over-ripe fruit and 15% of alcohol to make a spectacular St Emilion. A class act!
