Tasting Notes

WA95+

With some of the oldest vines in all of Bordeaux, especially one parcel from 1905, Belair Monange’s 2012 (14.5% alcohol) is a tribute to this great terroir that was poorly managed and exploited prior to the family of Jean-Pierre Moueix taking over. Now it is Christian Moueix and his son Edouard who manage the property and produce the wine. The 2012 is a beauty, with a deep ruby/purple color, complex notes of minerals, crushed rock, red and black fruits, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, great texture, long finish and true ability and character. It should age beautifully for 20 or more years and yet be drinkable another three or four. Production is small, as only 1,300 cases were produced.

The Winery

Belair-Monange

Since 2012, Belair Monange has been made from three parcels on gravel, clay and limestone. It is that very intersection that yields one of the most distinctive wines in Saint-Emilion… Belair Monange increasingly gives the two established flagships in the Moueix family’s range (Trotanoy and La Fleur-Petrus) a run for their money.
– Antonio Galloni

As the next door neighbor of esteemed St. Emilion producer Château Ausone, Belair Monange is a winery located in the Right Bank of Bordeaux. The original vineyards are thought to have been planted in the mid-1700s, and the wines are Merlot-dominant blends with a significant amount of Cabernet Franc added. Interestingly enough, the winery was owned by the same family as Château Ausone for most of the 20th Century. At that same time it was managed by Pascal Delbeck, who was the head winemaker at Ausone, who sold it to the Moueix family in 2008. This was the same year that the winery launched their new label and rechristened name along with the first strong wine that was sold on the property in decades. .
