- 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 vineyard area is composed of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.
Château Belair-Monange 2011 has a red purple colour. The nose of this wine, we find hints of red fruits like cherry or raspberry. This wine is fine, delicate and creamy, which certainly comes from soil that is pure limestone, which has not suffered from lack of water. In the mouth this wine is rich, dense, opulent ripe tannins.
