The 2015 Belair-Monange has a strange bouquet at first, quite feral and animal, scents of smoked cigars and antique furniture permeating the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, fresh and vibrant, well-knitted oak with good tension if a little conservative finish. It just needs to soften a little, lose some of its rigidity. I suspect this is not the best showing for what I maintain is a great Saint-Émilion. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
