Annonce de Belair Monange St Emilion Grand Cru 2017


Producer: Bélair-Monange
Country: France
Region: Bordeaux
Grape: Cabernet Franc, Merlot

“It’s hard to believe that this is a second wine and it would certainly stand up confidently against many grand vins, even in this excellent quality vintage. More serious than the 2015, it has more depth to its dark fruits with swirls of liquorice and smoke adding interest to the finish. I would give it a few years before opening – although it tasted great when this same bottle was tried again after 48 hours – and it has real potential for ageing. The definition of an insider wine and definitely worth getting hold of. 30% new oak. Drink 2021 – 2027” Jane Anson,
