Marquis de Bellefont 2012, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
The ‘Bellefont’ vineyard enjoys an ideal position on the southern slopes of Saint-Emilion and was created by Count Louis-François de Belcier at the end of the 18th century. It lies alongside Châteaux Pavie, Larcis Ducasse and Tertre Roteboeuf. Its name means ‘Beautiful Fountain’ and is derived from the many springs on this clay-limestone hillside. Deep ruby colour, with ripe fruit on the nose and a mellow, lightly tannic structure with spicy notes. A well-balanced wine with a seductive finish.
