Chateau Belair-Monange 2008
€ 111,32 (incl. Vat)
The first substantial and reassuringly great Belair-Monange in many decades, the 2008 represents the epitome of elegance and minerality. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet red and black fruits intermixed with notes of spring flowers and crushed rocks, a layered mouthfeel, superb nobility and remarkable intensity offered in a finesse-filled format. Kudos to Edmond and Christian Moueix for their resurrection of this iconic 6.2 acre vineyard.
Ripe and focused, with a red fruit profile of crushed cherry, raspberry and red currant. A silky texture and tangy floral hints help extend the finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
