Chateau Belair-Monange 2018
Chateau Belair-Monange is an exuberant and flamboyant wine, that can have minimal cellaring or perfect with age.
Belair-Monange was chosen by Christian Moueix in the memory of Anne-Adele Monange. Anne-Adele Monange is the mother of Jean-Pierre Moueix and the grandmother of Christian Moueix. The team Ets. Moueix began producing the wine in 2008 after taking control of the property from Patrick Delbeck. Under the direction of Edouard Moueix and Christian Moueix, they began conducting a more stringent selection in the vineyard, reducing yields, and also began picking later. This allowed for harvesting riper fruit. Another change took place in 2009 when they began using optical sorting.
The 2018 Bélair-Monange races across the palate, showing its exuberant, flamboyant personality. Ripe plum, mocha, blood orange, star anise and cinnamon fill out the layers effortlessly. Sumptuous and generous, with striking balance, Bélair-Monange hits all the right notes. It can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring, but also has the pedigree to age effortlessly for decades. - Antonio Galloni - Vinous
