En Primeur product: order now for arrival mid 2021. This is a serious St Emilion for medium term cellaring. Now owned by Peter Kwok, the estate began in the seventeenth century in a location that nieghbours one of the best estates in the appellation, Tertre Roteboeuf. Indeed the family ownership in the 1960s saw the fruit sold under the label Le Tertre. Now rising in price and esteem under its own label, Bellefont Belcier is gaining extreme critical acclaim for the price. To remove foreign exchange risk for our customers, listed prices are all up final landed cost including GST. Payment is due on invoice/order placement, with delivery in mid 2021.

What The Critics Say

95-97/100 Jeb Dunnuck

"Tasted on multiple occasions, the 2018 Château Bellefont-Belcier always showed brilliantly, with a full-bodied, sexy style that’s very much in the vintage. Coming from a 12.5-hectare vineyard just beside Larcis Ducasse (this is an incredible terroir) and a blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, aging in 40% new French oak, its deep purple color is followed by a classic bouquet of ripe black fruits, tobacco leaf, earth, and spice box. Deep, rich, and textured, with sweet tannins, it’s another rock star effort this vintage that’s going to benefit from just short-term cellaring and keep for two decades or more."

95-96/100 James Suckling

"Intense aromas and flavors of blue fruit and violets. Hints of green tea and black olives. Changes all the time. Medium-to full-bodied with polished and very silky tannins. Love the center palate. The finish lasts for minutes. This year, about one-third cabernet franc gives an edge to the merlot and the touch of cabernet sauvignon."

95-97/100 The Wine Cellar Insider

"Flowers, crushed rocks, ripe, fresh stony fruits, silky textures and elegance. There is volume, refinement, length and character found here from start to finish. The wine was made from blending 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, reaching 14.3% alcohol. The wine is aged in a combination of new and used French oak casks with 10% of the harvest being aged in amphora."
