Château Belair Monange, 1er Grand Cru Classé, St Emilion, 2015

Tasting Note:

Belair Monange, which incorporates the vineyards of Magdelaine occupies an enviable position on the limestone Cote to the west of Chateau Ausone. We always taste this wine at the end of the JP Moueix tasting as it is so floral, lifted and very different to the style of the Pomerol range. Produced from 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 has that tell-tale profile of a wine produced from a great limestone site. It is brimming with high toned morello cherries, griotte, intense minerals and roses. It is vital, intense, engaging and utterly mouth-watering. The fruit is sumptuous, bright and silky, interspersed with notes of redcurrant and saline. This is an uplifting, seductive and deceptively powerful Belair Monange - bravo.
