Tasting Notes

WA92+

It is amazing how things have turned around for this tiny jewel of a property adjacent to Chateau Ausone. Production has been cut back and the selection process has become deeply serious as just over 1,500 cases were produced in this vintage. The dense ruby/purple-colored 2011 offers gorgeous aromas of kirsch, crushed rock, raspberries and subtle oak are followed by a medium-bodied, concentrated mouthfeel that suggests low yields and impeccable winemaking. A star of the vintage, it should be forgotten for 4-5 years and drunk over the following two decades.

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. .
