Critical Acclaim

"An absolutely magnificent wine from Christian Moueix and his son Edouard, this wine is right up there with their 2009 and may eclipse it in terms of its potential longevity. Dense purple, with a near-liqueur of crushed rocks and chalk intermixed with blueberry, black raspberry and cassis, this wine is very full-bodied for a Belair, with ethereal complexity and impressive texture and length. I believe this is the first vintage of the wine to be released in an engraved bottle, which seems to be the direction of all the top estates in the Jean-Pierre Moueix stable. More evidence of concerned Bordelais attempting to stop criminals intent on producing fraudulent bottles of these limited production wines. Forget this baby for 7-8 years and then look for it to evolve over three decades-plus."

"A big, complex wine from this continually improving property, this is now performing at its classed-growth level with concentrated ripe berry fruits and chocolate flavors. The wood aging is still showing through and needs time to integrate better, but as it does, this will be a great wine.

"Rather toasty today, with mocha and baker's chocolate notes weaving around the dense core of black currant and plum sauce. Flashes of hoisin sauce and tar add a nicely edgy feel on the long, dense finish, which needs cellaring to unwind fully. But there's some serious minerality buried here, so this will be worth the wait. Best from 2015 through 2030."
94 Points

"Deep ruby-purple. Sexy, aromatic nose combines ripe red cherry, cassis, Oriental spices and sandalwood. Sweet and supple on entry, then slightly tougher in the mid-palate, with chewy flavors of black fruits, licorice and dried herbs accented by a persistent floral note. I really liked this wine's overall balance and sneaky concentration. A very fine Belair-Monange that ought to age splendidly.
