Château Bélair-Monange sits at the highest point of Saint-Émilion neighbouring Château Ausone. The steep slope vineyards offers some of the most beautiful vistas overlooking the historic town of Saint-Émilion. Prior to 2008, the estate was known as Château Belair and has been recognised as one of the most well positioned sites in Saint-Émilion with vineyards dating back to 1730.
Following the outbreak of phylloxera the vineyard lapsed into a dilapidated condition and under the ownership of Pascal Delbeck (who also owned Château Ausone) the wines never reached the reputation of the pre-phylloxera era. In 2003, 30% of the property was sold to the Ets Moueix (owner of Hosanna, La Fleur-Pétrus, Tortanoy in Pomerol and Dominus in Napa). They bought the reminder on the property in 2008, following the purchase, the estate name was changed to Château Bélair-Monange.
