Château Bélair Monange 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Premier Grand Cru Classé

The nose is elegant, racy and offers a beautiful racy grain. The wine needs to be put in carafe. It reveals notes of Boysenberry, cassis and small notes of juicy wild small fruits associated with small touches of cocoa, spices as well as a very discreet hint of flowers (in the background). The palate is mineral, well-balanced, full of elegance and offers a good definition, a beautiful acidulous frame, a small tension, a small straightness, roundness, power, a beautiful freshness as well as a beautiful and very slightly tight grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy boysenberry, juicy / fleshy blueberry and small notes of wild strawberry associated with small / fine touches of black fruits, licorice, flowers, spices as well as a very discreet hint of cardamom. Tannins are fine, elegant, racy and straight. Good length. Very slight chew and power on the finish.
