A huge, intense Saint-Émilion, the Bélair-Monange is just as impressive from bottle as it was from cask. That's the good news. The not-so-good news is that the wine is going to need at least a decade to shed some of its considerable baby fat. A rush of super-ripe black cherry, game, smoke and tobacco hits the palate as this dramatic, unrestrained Saint-Émilion shows off its explosive personality. The 2015 speaks with an assertive voice that demands attention – and it got mine, that’s for sure. The blend is 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb 2018)

Dark ruby color. Surprising that this is 10+ years old. Very soft initially but finish is still rough when tasted soon after the bottle was opened. Red berries, soil and lead. Opened up after an hour + and is a beauty.
