This 2016 Chateau Belair-Monange is a remarkable wine that traces its origins back to Roman times. Situated at the highest point of Saint-Émilion’s famed limestone plateau, it has long been considered one of the region’s very best crus. The wine is full-bodied, concentrated, soft, and silky, with a beautiful purity to its layers of fruits. You also find, smoke, licorice, wet earth, cigar wrapper, and spice. Fresh, energetic and fruity, with soft, polished tannins this is going to be a knockout with at least a decade of aging.
