Producer and Tasting Notes


Château Belles Eaux

This Languedoc winery is owned by Pichon-Longueville in Bordeaux. The vineyards of Mas Belles Eaux stretch over 90 hectares of hillsides in the Languedoc, where they benefit from a varied, complex terroir of Villafranchian gravel over red clay and alluvial soils. The estate was called Belles Eaux because of the numerous springs around the property which run down into the Peyne River, which has a unique effect on the terroir and provide their freshness to the wines of Mas Belles Eaux.

Tasting Notes

This has a wonderfully aromatic nose with notes of violet, kirsch and vanilla. The palate is firm and rounded with excellent length of flavour and terrific balance. You get blackcurrant, cherry, and some cedar notes on the long and flavoursome finish.

Food Matches
