Château Bélair Monange 2015 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, 1er Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, gourmand, elegant, racy and nicely powerful. It reveals notes of blackberry jam, cassis and slight notes of strawberry jam, spices associated with a discreet hint of Ceylon tea as well as a fine hint of acidulous candy and liquorice. The palate is fruity, suave, elegant and offers minerality, freshness, tension as well as a nice silky and slightly unctuous matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of strawberry jam, blackberry jam and slight notes of cassis associated with a hint of Quetsche plum, black cherry, licorice as well as a discreet note of rosewood, with slight notes of oak (in the background) and dark chocolate / mocha. Tannins are fine and well built. Good length and persistence with notes of dark chocolate.
