  • Wine

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.

Château Bélair-Monange

Great wine estate of Saint-Émilion

 

The Château Bélair-Monange of Saint-Emilion is a 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 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 Edouard 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 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.
