Laurent and Sylvie de Bosredon have modernised Château Bélingard both in the vineyards and the cellars, while ensuring they take care of their vineyard and its environment. The philosophy at Château Bélingard is summed up in their own words: "The generations that went before, within their own era, at their own pace, and with their own views, shaped the soul of Bélingard."
The vineyards used for this wine are located on on rolling countryside to the left bank of the Dordogne Valley with clay and limestone soil. This wine is made using Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
The grapes are picked from a selection of old vines. After the harvest, grapes are put into stainless steel vats for 24 days of maceration with the must being pumped over several times a day during the alcoholic fermentation. Then malolactic fermentation takes place in vats before wine is transferred into French oak barrels (30% new) and matured for 13 months. After racking, the wine is bottled.
This wine has a beautiful deep colour with a ruby tint. The floral aromas on the nose are supported by red berries and balsamic notes. In the mouth, the taste is round supple and intense with red fruits flavours which also have a full well-balanced tannin structure. It is a very smooth wine with a long lasting aftertaste. This wine can be left for around 8 - 10 years before drinking. This wine pairs well with poultry, (turkey, duck) red meat, roasts, game and good cheese.
