An Expression of the Saint-Emilion Terroir

The Grand Vin of the Grand Cru Classe estate Chateau Bellefont-Belcier, owned by the Vignobles k, reveals in its 2018 vintage the essence of the Saint-Emilion terroir.

Situated on the left bank of the Bordeaux region, the magnificent vineyard of Chateau Bellefont-Belcier stretches over 13.5 hectares of vines planted on a magnificent terroir of clay-limestone soils and “molasses du Fronsadais.” The vines are cultivated through plot-by-plot management with a natural grass cover, all while respecting the natural balance of the environment. The wines are vinified in concrete vats and with no sulfur added during fermentation.

The Chateau Bellefont-Belcier 2018 from the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe is a blend dominated by Merlot (70%), complimented by Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). The wine is aged 30% in new barriques, 10% in foudres, 30% in new oak barrels and 30% in second-use barrels.

Parker : 91-93 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Bellefont Belcier delivers profound notions of warm plums, baked cherries and mulberries with hints of spice cake and underbrush. Full-bodied, rich and decadent, it has a rock-solid backbone of rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy. Aging is in progress for an anticipated 20 months in 40% new, 40% one year-old and 20% two year-old barrels. The blend is 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
