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.
