Château Bellefont-Belcier was bought in 1889 by the Faure family who, through their innovation and hard work, made this estate into one of the jewels of the Bordeaux region. In 1994, it became the property of BJL & Partenaires, opening a new chapter in the life of this Grand Cru Classé, whose facilities were modernised. Château Bellefont-Belcier has passed through several hands in recent years before joining the Vignobles K of Hong Kong's Peter Kwok in 2017.
Around twenty hectares in total, the vineyard of Château Bellefont-Belcier, Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion in the Bordeaux region, extends over a clay-limestone hillside and molasse de Fronsadais soils.

The Château Bellefont-Belcier 2019 displays a beautiful dense garnet red colour. What freshness and complexity in its intense bouquet! Aromas of black berries mingle with liquorice. On the palate, this wine reveals its terroir of origin, through a refreshing tension typical of wines from limestone soils. The Bellefont-Belcier 2019 is a lively and full-bodied wine with compact and powerful tannins. The finish reveals plenty of fruit and is distinguished by its length.
