Château Bélair-Monange

James Suckling-99 Pts

#78 in James Suckling’s Top 100 Wines of 2023

Full-bodied with a solid palate of tannins that melt into the wine. It’s sleek and muscular with  fantastic length and presence. Reminds me of great old Belairs from the 1950s.
Cool wine.
Give it six to eight years of time. Best after 2028.

Description

Château Bélair-Monange

 

DESCRIPTION:

    • Chateau Bélair-Monange is a Bordeaux wine from the appellation Saint-Émilion, ranked Premier Grand Cru classé B in the Classification of Saint-Émilion wine.
    • The winery is located in the Right Bank of France’s Bordeaux wine region in the commune of Saint-Émilion, in the department Gironde.
    • The estate was considered the leading winery of Saint-Émilion for most of the 19th century.

GRAPE VARIETY:

    • 98% Merlot
    • 2% Cabernet Franc

FOOD PAIRINGS:

    • For pairing with Bordeaux, look for the more refined and simply prepared cuts such as loin chops, rib chops and a rack of lamb.
    • These classic dishes can be a divine pairing with Bordeaux.
    • More aromatic, rustic and spicy preparations of lamb often call for a wine with a bit more of a chewy, rustic and herbal character.

TASTING NOTES:

“Very intense blackberries, black olives, blueberries and dried flowers. Stony minerality. Even some pine. Full-bodied with superb depth of fruit and ultra fine tannins that are intense and polished. The finish is so long and delivers so much flavor, from wet earth to blackberry again. Seamless palate. Try after 2026”. – 99  Points – James Suckling
