2008 Belair Monange 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 93+ points
Drink by: N/A
This represents the epitome of elegance and minerality. It is accompanied by sweet red and black fruits intermixed with notes of spring flowers, crushed rocks, a layered mouthfeel, superb nobility, and remarkable intensity in a finesse-filled format.
"Château Belair-Monange traces its origins back to Roman times. By 1850 it was ranked by Cocks & Feret as the leading wine of Saint-Emilion, a position it held well into the twentieth century. Etablissements Jean-Pierre Moueix purchased the iconic Château in 2008 and immediately undertook extensive renovations to restore the Cru to its rightful historic status.
In 2012, Château Magdelaine, a contiguous Premier Grand Cru Classe acquired by Jean-Pierre Moueix in 1952, was merged into Château Belair-Monange. The name ‘Monange,’ in addition to its literal translation, ‘my angel,’ was the maiden name of Jean-Pierre Moueix’s mother, Anne-Adele, the first Moueix woman to call Saint-Emilion her home. Château Belair-Monange combines the terroirs of the most privileged sites of Saint-Emilion."
