Winemaker's Notes:

This estate spent more of its life under the name of Chateau Belair. The Bordeaux wine property was renamed in memory of Anne-Adèle Monange. She was the mother of Jean-Pierre Moueix. Monange was the first woman from the family to settle in St. Emilion. This took place in 1931. 2008 was the first vintage displaying the new name on the labels. This Bordeaux wine property made a major leap in progress when the team from Ets Moueix began producing their wine in 2008.
