About the Wine

Created at the end of the 18th century, Château Bellefont-Belcier is ideally located on the south coast of Saint-Emilion, alongside Château Pavie, Château Larcis-Ducasse and Château Tertre Roteboeuf. Marquis de Bellefont, their second label, provides you the opportunity to experience Grand Cru Chateau Bellefront-Belcier for under $30.

The Château became the property of the Faure family at the end of the 19th century. It was at this time that the vineyard became one of the flagship estates of the Bordeaux region with numerous awards. Including the only gold medal awarded by the Ministry of Agriculture to Bordeaux wines, during the Competition agricultural general of Paris in 1892. Modern for his time, he designed the famous circular vat in the hillside with its gravity reception. Preserved intact since its construction, it is today one of the jewels of this property. Château Bellefont-Belcier was classified in 2006 as a Grand Cru Classé.

Château Bellefont -Belcier is located in the town of Saint-Laurent-des-Combes in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation area. The vineyard is divided into three distinct zones: the limestone plateau, the clay-limestone south coast, the clay-sandy foot of the coast. Ideally suited for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. With an average vine age of 35 years.

Tasting Notes: Red Wine. 72% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium-bodied, this richly layered wine offers aromas of cassis black raspberry, dark chocolate, black currant, and espresso.
