Château Belair Monange, 1er Grand Cru Classé, St Emilion, 2018

Tasting Note:

Belair Monange, which incorporates the vineyards of Belair and 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 different to the style of the Pomerol range. Produced from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 displays the class of this great limestone terroir. Initially this is intensely mineral, you can almost smell the terroir, then with aeration aromas of cherry, dark chocolate, Asian spice, sweet dark earth and goji berries emerge. This has wonderful mouthcoating fruit with real persistence and bold flavours. It is slick and refined yet authoritative and beautifully textured and finishes with starry cranberry notes. This possibly has the most velour and texturally impressive tannins we have ever seen from Belair Monange. Luxuriant and compelling.
