Wine Advocate-Parker:
Chateau Belair and Chateau Magdelaineùboth Premier Grand Classified Growth Saint-Emilion estatesùto form Chateau Belair Monange hits pay-dirt with this spectacular 2015 release. Composed of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Belair Monange has the most singular nose of grilled meats, smoked game, iron ore and fallen leaves over a slowly unfurling ripe fruit core of crushed black plums blackberry preserves and blackcurrant with fragrant keys of star anise and potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and opulent in the mouth, the palate reveals an arresting backbone of exquisitely ripe, very firm tannins and sparks of background acidity lifting and defining the rich, densely packed layers, culminating in an epically long and multifaceted finish.

Winery Notes:
Blends 88% Merlot with 12% Cabernet Franc. Deep purple / ruby ​​in the glass, this Saint-Emilion offers a powerful nose of blackcurrants, crushed black plums and blackberry preserves, mingling with shades of grilled meat, fallen leaves and tobacco. The tannins are densely layered and quite fine, but they will take a closer look at them. The finish here is long and pure, with the freshness of limestone clearly represented. Drink 2022-2035
