Château Bellefont-Belcier

Created at the end of the 18th century, Château Bellefont-Belcier is ideally located on the south coast of Saint-Emilion, bordering Château Pavie, Château Larcis-Ducasse and Château Tertre Roteboeuf.

The Domaine Bellefont-Belcier originally belonged to a powerful Bordeaux family: at the end of the 18th century, Count Louis-François de Belcier had first founded the vineyard and then, at the beginning of the 19th century, built the Château which he named Bellefont (short for "Belle Fontaine", in reference to the many springs near the Château from the clay-limestone hillside).

The Château Bellefont -Belcier is located in the commune of Saint-Laurent-des-Combes in the Saint-Emilion appellation area Grand Cru. The vineyard extends over 13.5 hectares of vines in a single block. It is divided into three distinct areas: the limestone plateau, the southern clay-limestone slope, the sandy-clay foot of the slope.

On these different types of soil, we find the three great red grape varieties of Bordeaux  in the following proportion: 72% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon spread over 28 parcels.

Description Château Bellefont-Belcier 2022.

JAMES SUCKLING  : 97-98/100

"Blackberry, iron, hazelnut, crushed stone, hints of salt and spice. Medium to full body. Fresh and vivid. Very sophisticated and classy. The tannins are silky and so fine, but then it opens up at the end of the palate".
