Tasting Notes

This wine is made from the best parcels of the Chateau Belregard estate. Aged in cement for one year; no oak is used for ultimate freshness. Dark fruit flavors, plenty of minerality and fine tannins make this a great wine for the table.

Staff Pick Notes

This great wine goes through a week of cold maceration and fermentation starts with natural yeasts. The wine is aged for about 18 months with a combination of barrels then bottled without filtration.The Pueyo's family, since 2012, started making dramatic changes in their wine house. They decided to stop using small barrels and their production became organic. What makes them great producers is also the quality of their grapes. The result is a concentrated wine with blackcurrant and plum flavors followed by a pronounced minerality. It's drinkable and fresh with medium acidity. A great example of "left bank" Bordeaux!

Cabernet Franc

Relegated to moderate obscurity in modern times, Cabernet Franc is in fact the proud parent of the attention-hogging Cabernet Sauvignon (after an illicit affair with Sauvignon Blanc a hundred-odd years ago). Cabernet Franc has remained close to its roots in France, enjoying small pockets of popularity primarily in the Loire Valley (specifically in Chinon), where it is often bottled as a varietal...
