jamessuckling.com, April 2019

(98-99) This is very linear and structured in a classical way for Bordeaux with a very focused and tight core of beautiful fruit that gives an agile and vivid palate of pretty fruit and bright acidity, not to mention the...

Very intense blackberries, black olives, blueberries and dried flowers. Stony minerality. Even some pine. Full-bodied with superb depth of fruit and ultra fine tannins that are intense and polished. The finish is so long...

TheWineCellarInsider.com, March 2021

The wines here continue getting better year after year. And 2018 is no exception. Just the color, with its dark, purple ink hue tells you you're in for something special. There is incredible intensity of flavor here. The...

An incredible expression of Merlot grown on limestone soils, the 2018 Château Belair-Monange (90/10 Merlot and Cabernet Franc) sports a dense purple hue as well as powerful notes of blackcurrants, kirsch liqueur, flowery...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, March 2021

Made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Belair Monange rolls effortlessly out of the glass with gregarious scents of black cherry preserves, stewed plums and...

Decanter, April 2019

A gorgeous wine, with concentrated power offset by lift and lyricism. It fully expresses the character and personality of its location on the limestone plateau, showing real juiciness and a focussed minerality, with...

janeanson.com, September 2021

Now standing up alongside the most sought-after names of St Emilion, Belair-Monange is on the limestone plateau, and has been the recipient of serious investment over recent years. Still extremely young, gorgeously ripped...
WE 97

Wine Enthusiast, April 2019

(95–97) Barrel Sample. Graceful Merlot shines in this wine. It has fines touch of tannins and acidity that come through to give the wine freshness and structure. It is elegant but with enough power and density to age well.
VN 96

Vinous, November 2019

(VN 94-96 points) The 2018 Bélair-Monange has a plush and generous bouquet: raspberry, redcurrant, warm bricks and light truffle aromas that perhaps cannot compete with the minerality of the Trotanoy tasted alongside...
VN 96

Vinous, March 2021

The 2018 Bélair-Monange, so impressive out of barrel, delivers now that it finds itself incarcerated by glass. It is endowed with a seriously impressive nose, delivering blackberry and still that faint warm...
WS 95

Wine Spectator, March 2021

Restrained style, with gently mulled currant and black cherry notes forming the core while hints of anise, applewood and sweet tobacco peek through on the finish. Long, fine chalky minerality extends the finish as the...
