  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 96-98

    The 2022 Beaumont has a classy bouquet with blackberry, wild hedgerow, iodine and subtle iris flower scents. The oak is neatly integrated, and it retains delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins, fleshy and almost creamy in texture. With good depth and light spice, the 2022 is cohesive on the finish. This will be a thoroughly enjoyable Beaumont that should age well in bottle. Tasted thrice with consistent notes. Drink 2032-2070

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 94-95

    Aromas of blackberries, cherry preserve, black tea and licorice introduce the 2022 Belair Monange, a full-bodied, deep and powerful wine with a layered, somewhat liqueured core of fruit, powdery tannins and a long, expansive and slightly heady finish. Perhaps because the vines are younger, this is the cuvée in the Mouiex portfolio that shows the ripeness of the vintage the most this year.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 95-97

    The 2022 Bélair-Monange is all class. Silky and sensual, Bélair-Monange is utterly captivating from the first taste. Crushed red berry fruit, mint, cinnamon, rose petal and lavender add gorgeous aromatic lift to play off a core of bright red-toned fruit. All the elements are beautifully balanced throughout. Drink 2030-2052.

  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 96-98

    Edouard Moueix’s home and impressive new winery sits prominently on top of St Emilion’s famed plateau. With Ch Ausone on one side and Ch Canon on the other, this possesses some of the finest appellational geology with its blue clay and limestone soils. A statuesque wine, full of abundant Merlot fruit (96%), truffle and wild bramble, with great density and concentration. The overall power is carefully kept in check by finesse and subtlety on the finish. It will require patience but has great prospects.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 97-98

    Loads of mocha, red fruits and hazenut. Nuts too. Wild strawberries and violets. Full-bodied and juicy with dusty and fine tannins that spread across the palate. Lovely soft texture. Elegant and long at the end. Rich and juicy at the end. 98% merlot and 2% cabernet franc.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2023, Score: 17.5

    Slightly timid on the nose but deep, fresh and complex. Lovely texture, the tannins ripe and rounded. Plenty of energy and drive, the finish long and persistent with a chalky-terroir note. Looks to have the reserve for ageing. (James Lawther MW). Drink 2030 – 2048

  • Jane Anson, April 2023, Score: 98-100

    Beautiful quality here, all about measured delivery of the character of the vintage, with a slab of limestone minerality that sits squarely in the mid palate, emphasising the juicy pomegranate, orange rind, blackberry and raspberry fruits that slowly inch around, Will take its time to fully reveal, this is a really slow build and a vintage that needs time from this kind of terroir, but it's got all it need to go the distance. 35hl/h yield. 26ha, harvest September 8 to 20, Edouard Moueix owner and director. Potential 100.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 95-97+

    Another beautiful vintage for this cuvée, the 2022 Château Belair-Monange is 98% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc coming from a mix of terroirs on the upper plateau and hillside vineyard just outside of Saint-Emilion. This dense plum-hued effort offers up an incredible bouquet of black raspberries, chalky minerality, spring flowers, and graphite. Rich, full-bodied, and concentrated, it has an incredibly sense of minerality, a great mid-palate, and enough structure to warrant a solid 7-8 years of bottle age.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 19.5++

    Immensely impressive and incredibly flavoursome, this is a heroic wine in 2022, and the scale and length are such that they genuinely take the breath away. The oak is full, coating the wine like wrapping paper on an indulgent gift. It cradles the wine without distorting its shape, and this is vital because the story here is the fabulous, mineral-drenched fruit at the core of this Titan. While the entire experience is controlled and introverted, the core flavours are staggeringly profound, and they unfold metronomically the longer you hold the wine in your glass. The tannins are as fine as any in this vintage, and they do not bully the palate or take away from the experience in any way. Instead, they allow the wine to build, bursting into individual flavour volleys, no two of which are the same. Power comes in all shapes and forms; in this wine, it comes in stealth mode with so much class and control.

Region

St Emilion

South of Pomerol lies the medieval, perched village of St Emilion. Surrounding St Emilion are vines that produce round, rich and often hedonistic wines. Despite a myriad of soil types, two main ones dominate - the gravelly, limestone slopes that delve down to the valley from the plateau and the valley itself which is comprised of limestone, gravel, clay and sand. Despite St Emilion's popularity today, it was not until the 1980s to early 1990s that attention was brought to this region. Robert Parker, the famous wine critic, began reviewing their Merlot-dominated wines and giving them hefty scores. The rest is history as they say. Similar to the Médoc, there is a classification system in place which dates from 1955 and outlines several levels of quality. These include its regional appellation of St Emilion, St Emilion Grand Cru, St Emilion Grand Cru Classé and St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, which is further divided into "A" (Ausone and Cheval Blanc) and "B" (including Angélus, Canon, Figeac and a handful of others). To ensure better accuracy, the classification is redone every 10 years enabling certain châteaux to be upgraded or downgraded depending on on the quality of their more recent vintages.
