  • Presentation of the winery

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 Ausone

One of the prides of Saint-Émilion

 

Ausone is one of the oldest buildings in Saint-Émilion. The name "Ausone" supposedly comes from a poet who lived in a "Lucaniacum" in the area: Decimus Magnus Ausonius (310-395). Over the centuries, the castle had a few owners. It also changed its name in 1952, to officially become "Casteau Dauzone". Today, the estate belongs to the Vauthier family, direct descendants of Pierre Chatonnet (the castle's owner in 1690) and the Dubois-Challon family (proprietors of Château Bélair).

The vineyards of this Bordeaux Château represent 7 hectares of a beautiful limestone plateau, filled with gravel found in Saint-Émilion. The grape variety distribution of the vineyards is 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot. Ausone is one of the most coveted wines of Bordeaux, because it is very rare on the market. Nearly 18,000 bottles are produced per vintage.
