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. 93+

Fresh mineral-driven aromas of bitter cherry redcurrant flowers and rose petal. Quite soil-driven and suave with a light touch and good spicy lift to the intense mineral and red berry flavors. Sweet pliant and rich but at the same time youthful and suave with a late hint of orange peel on the long refined aftertaste. As of 2008 the old Belair property planted on limestone next to Ausone is solely owned by J.P. Moueix (essentially Christian Moueix and his son Edouard) and this is the first vintage bottled under the new name.

Big and structured wine with ripe jammy fruit. Rich spice soft tannins and dense texture all come together to give a rounded feel. Acidity at the end makes a final tight contrast. R.V.
