Tasting Note:

2014 This is the first release of the new third wine of Belair Monange, the J P Moueix estate that comprises the old Chateau Belair and Chateau Magdelaine. The vineyards are ideally situated on the plateau above Belair and Ausone, neighbouring Chateau Canon and the south facing slopes below Belair. It is regarded as one of the greatest terroirs in Bordeaux and now in the capable hands of the Moueix family, the vineyards are really beginning to show their full potential. We were a little sceptical when we heard that we would be tasting the third wine. Not that we are snobs, but third wines are sometimes not that exciting… The Haut Roc Blanquant was a revelation. It is bursting with vitality; pure, well delineated flavours abound from the glass. There is a real intensity and drive to the fruit, as well as a sense of tension and harmony, and a honed tannic profile. A real delight!
