Château Bellefont-Belcier

Saint émilion grand cru

Created at the end of the 18th century, the Bellefont-Belcier estate is located in an ideal position on Saint-Emilion’s southern slope. Its name means “Beautiful fountain”, because of the numerous springs sheltered below the slope on which the vineyard is planted.
