About the winery:
Created in the late 18th century, the Bellefont-Belcier estate is perfectly situated on Saint-Emilion’s south-facing slopes, neighbourhing Château Pavie, Château Larcis-Ducasse and Château Tertre Roteboeuf. Château Bellefont-Belcier originally belonged to a very powerful Bordeaux family: at the end of the 18th century, the Count Louis-François de Belcier had first founded the vineyard then, at the beginning of the 19th century, he build the Château which he named Bellefont (Belle Fontaine means ‘beautiful fountain’ and is a reference to the numerous springs hidden on the hillside into which the vines plunge their roots.) Major restructuring work in the vineyard was undertaken in 1994. Château Bellefont-Belcier was classified in 2006 as Grand Cru Classé. Peter Kwok acquired the property in 2017. Les Tours de Belcier is the second label of Chateau Bellefont-Belcier.
