Many castles in Bordeaux are called belair or bel air, that is why in 2008 the castle was renamed "Belair Monange" in tribute to the grandmother of Christian Moueix, named Anne-Adèle Monange.
The castle is adjacent to Ausone, favorably exposed to the south and east, the vineyards of 12.5 hectares is located on limestone and clay-limestone soils. The wines are composed of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.

  • Wine

The dress of Château Belair Monange 2010 is red purple. Nose, we discover hints of red fruits, such as raspberries. On the palate, the wine is rich, dense, and opulent, with a hint of minerality. This Saint-Emilion is incredibly concentrated.

Château Bélair-Monange

Great wine estate of Saint-Émilion

 

The Château Bélair-Monange of Saint-Emilion is an old 14th century creation, when the Bordeaux region was still called "Guyenne". At the time, the vineyard belonged to Governor Robert de Knolles, whose descendants sold the produced wine under the name "Cru de Canolle" (a French version of their family name). The estate was highly successful, in spite of the troubles during the French Revolution, until 1916. That's when what was now known as the "Château Bélair" was sold to Édouard Dubois-Challon.

In 2006, part of the estate was acquired by the Jean-Pierre Moueix group. Many castles in Bordeaux are called "belair" or "bel air", that is why in 2008 the castle was renamed "Belair Monange" as a tribute to Christian Moueix's grandmother, named Anne-Adèle Monange. The castle is adjacent to the famous Château Ausone, favorably exposed to the south and east, the vineyards of 12.5 hectares is located on limestone and clay-limestone soils. The vineyard area is composed of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.
