Château Bélair-Monange was born from the vineyards of Châteaux Bélair and Magdelaine, both historic First Classified Growths of Saint-Émilion. Tracing its origins back to Roman times, the vineyard of Château Bélair is situated at the highest point of Saint-Émilion’s famed limestone plateau. Château Magdelaine, a contiguous cru acquired in 1952, has always been renowned for the remarkable elegance of its wines. Château Bélair-Monange expresses the unique style of the greatest parcels of these two complementary terroirs.

An important restructuring of the vineyard was initiated in 2008 immediately following the acquisition of the estate by Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix. Another wine embodying the inherent qualities of the vineyard – minerality, concentration of red berries, balance and length – emerged in 2014: Annonce de Bélair-Monange.

Produced in very limited quantities, Annonce enjoys the same attention as the Grand Vin: meticulous vineyard work undertaken with respect for the environment followed by a manual harvest once the grapes have reached optimal maturity. Vinification takes place in concrete and stainless-steel vats, where maceration and extraction are gentle and measured in order to allow the fruit its highest expression. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels.

Although Annonce exhibits great charm in its youth, a few years of cellaring or a few hours of decanting will be largely rewarded.

“The 2020 Announce de Bélair-Monange is not a de facto Deuxième Vin, but rather a selection of barrels made in the winery. It has a well-defined bouquet with black cherries, raspberry coulis and faint black truffle shavings. The oak is neatly assimilated. The palate is very smooth, with layered dark berry fruit laced with white pepper and a touch of cumin. Gentle build with a caressing finish. Lovely.”

“A blend of 98% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2020 Annonce de Belair-Monange is deep garnet-purple in color. It rocks up with ready-to-go scents of baked black plums and kirsch, leading to wafts of tobacco leaf, Indian spices, and damp soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a sturdy structure of chewy tannins and just enough freshness to support the expressive black fruits, finishing with a spicy kick.”
