The vineyards of Ch Bélair-Monange occupy some of the most desirable plots of the appellation. One third lie on Saint-Emilion’s limestone plateau, near the historic town, one third are on adjoining, south-facing, steep hillsides, with the balance being on the terraces between the two. The 2019 assemblage is 98% Merlot with 2% Cabernet Franc. Colour is lustrous ruby-purple, nose being magnificently fresh, combining ripe, delicately spiced red fruits with floral perfume. Palate is simply glorious, showing remarkable harmony between rich structure, dense, multi-layered fruitiness, velvety texture and refreshing, super-long length. Here is a Saint-Emilion that has poise and elegance – a great and gorgeous wine, with immense potential (for drinking 2026-2040+).
