(JS98-99 points) Incredible depth of fruit to this wine with ultra-powerful tannins that remain agile and soft. So much intensity. It’s layered with ripe fruit and caressing mouthfeel.

It’s layered with ripe fruit and caressing mouthfeel. Neoclassical in style. Mostly merlot with a touch of cabernet franc.

(WS95-98 points) Features some seriously racy raspberry and plum coulis flavors, glistening with bitter orange and rooibos tea accents before picking up a long chalky spine on the finish. Tightly focused, revealing impressive perfume that should unfurl slowly. - JM

A striking bouquet endowed with the essence of graphite, smoke, licorice and tobacco is pure allure. Vertical on the palate, with soaring tannins and tons of structure, the 2015 possesses remarkable intensity to match its explosive, energetic personality. Even with all of its size, the 2015 remains incredibly nuanced and finessed throughout. Today, it is one of the most exciting wines of the year. The blend is 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc.

(WE96-98 points) Dark tannins and a dense texture define this wine. With acidity and black fruits shining through this firm structure, it shows immense developments at this estate. This wine will be long-lived.

(WA95-97 points) The 2015 Belair-Monange is a blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc. It has a reticent bouquet at first, but it soon opens up with layers of blackberry, raspberry coulis, orange sorbet and floral aromas. This is beautifully defined and intellectual, a Saint Emilion with aromatic secrets that will only be revealed with bottle age. The palate is medium-bodied with quite sturdy tannin. There is a firm backbone to this Belair-Monange, a serious Saint Emilion, complex and intellectual with precise red and black fruit, a touch of spice and a dash of white pepper on the finish. Dare I say, it represents the first Belair-Monange that ranks among JP Moueix's finest wines since the family acquired the property in 2011. - Neal Martin
