(WS95-98 points) This is about as pure a beam of unadulterated cassis and cherry sauce as you can get, beautifully silky in feel and carrying through a very long, refined finish. The chalky echo is there, but it's really tucked away for now. Lilting incense hint in the background too. – JM

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, April 2017
(WE95-97 points) This wine is ripe and beautifully perfumed. Juicy, concentrated blackberry flavors are backed by structured tannins. It is wine for the long haul.

(WA94-96 points) The 2016 Belair-Monange, the home of Edouard Moueix and his family, is a blend of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. It has a tightly wound bouquet with red and black fruit, touches of cedar and smoke developing in the glass, reticent at first but unfolding nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, a more structured and rigid Belair-Monange compared to recent vintages, adorned with fine salinity on the finish. It will require several years in bottle to show its best, but it will be worth waiting for. - Neal Martin

(JS95-96 points) A very dense and pretty center palate of dried fruit, spices and dried tobacco. Medium to full body, chewy tannins and a savory finish. Linear and racy.

Linear and racy. Tight and reserved now but wait to see the structure develop fabulously.

(AG92-95 points) The 2016 Bélair-Monange is silky, bright and polished, with plenty of floral notes wrapped around a core of expressive red-toned fruit. In 2016, the wine is quite delicate and restrained, with perhaps a bit less depth than in its very best recent vintages.
