Château Belair Saint Émilion Premier Grand Cru Classe 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Now under full control of the Moueix family, with Christian Moueix's son<br/>Edouard managing the estate, and their new technical director Eric Murisasco<br/>(who replaced Jean-Claude Berrouet) making the wine, I expect this property to<br/>soar starting with the 2008 and beyond. <br/> <br/>This is a great terroir that was horribly under-exploited and managed by the<br/>previous regime, and there is no reason why it cannot perform close to the<br/>level of Ausone, which is one of its neighbors. In 2006 the Moueix family did<br/>not own the estate outright, but did have some influence, and the 2006 is<br/>certainly a good effort, with notes of kirsch liqueur, crushed rock, and some<br/>subtle herbs in a medium-bodied, finesse-styled wine that should be drunk over<br/>the next 10-12 years. <br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Apr 05)
