Situated at the highest point of Saint Emilion's famous limestone plateau, Belair Monange has long been regarded as one of the finest. The property dates back to Roman times, remarkable in itself and has been rated 1er GCC since the 1855 classification. Ets Jean Pierre Moueix purchased it in 2008 and immediately set about major renovations. In 2012 a contiguous 1er GCC, Château Magdelaine, was purchased and merged, taking the vineyards to 23 hectares. Monange literally means 'my angel', but was also the maiden name of Jean Pierre's mother, Anne Adèle. Superb vineyards on the limestone plateau lend minerality and freshness, while the blue clay slopes brings intensity and length. Aged 16-18 months in 50% new French oak means this is a keeper.
"Fresh earth, truffle, sous bois and attractively ripe blueberry and plum aromas. Great potential"
