Winemaker Notes

What a pleasure to be able to discover a thousand subtleties through a wine. And precisely by tasting the vintages and comparing them, these nuances are easily appreciated. Without a doubt they have a family air, but each year can boast of its own richness. Should it be drunk young or old ? Today, it is no longer a crime to drink these wines younger. The tradition, however, is to let the red wines age over a longer period, especially the Saint Émilion and, in particular, the Bellefont Belcie

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

A marvelous sleeper of the vintage from Dominique Hebrard, this 2005 exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, a smoky, blackberry liqueur-filled nose with hints of licorice, earth, and truffles, full body, powerful flavors, and dramatic, but sweet tannin. Moreover, this beauty is still available at a realistic price. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030.

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Beautiful aromas of crushed blackberry, dried lavender and licorice lead to a full-bodied palate, with supervelvety tannins and a long, long finish. Beautiful and juicy. Superb. Best after 2012. 4,165 cases made.

International Wine Cellar

Good deep red-ruby. Currant, smoke and roast coffee on the expressive nose. Suave and sweet, with a fine-grained texture and enticing inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of redcurrant and tobacco. Finishes with fine tannins and very good length.

Then in 1803, on this magnificent site, he built the château which he named "BELLEFONT", or "Belle Fontaine" (Beautiful Fountain), because of the numerous springs nearby, rising from the chalky-clay...
