TASTING NOTES

"A final blend of 90% Merlot with 10% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Belair Monange has a flamboyant nose of potpourri, Indian spices, Sichuan pepper, hoisin and sandalwood over a core of crème de cassis, blackberry pie and blueberry preserves with a waft of dusty earth. The medium to full-bodied palate is rich and seductive with oodles of freshness and layers of floral and spice notions, finishing long." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #236

"A compacted and seamless young wine with ripe and fine tannins, focused dark fruit and a flavorful finish. A beauty." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2017 Bélair-Monange is fast-becoming the jewel in the crown of J-P Moueix, and also the home of Edouard Moueix and his family. It has a very perfumed and winsome bouquet, so pure and delineated with crystalline red cherries, crushed strawberry and very subtle cassis scents that are sutured with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin. Tensile from the start, this Bélair-Monange conveys a sense of tension and energy that lingers on the aftertaste, a touch of white pepper leaving the tongue tingling 30 seconds after it has departed. This is an assured, and bewitching Saint-Émilion, one that is really beginning to fire on all cylinders." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Ripe and fresh, featuring delightful plum and raspberry fruit pushing outward, while light savory, mineral and red licorice notes add range through the finish. Sneakily long, with the minerality showing some stamina." Wine Spectator

"Inky crimson. Cassis dominates the nose. Tannins are so supple already and the whole is caressing and gorgeous even with the Moueix 'house style' of dark, minerally restraint. Lovely long, dry finish." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
