Designation : Languedoc
Grape varieties : Syrah - Grenache - Mourvèdre
Origin : The Chateau Belles Eaux main advantage is its location in the heart of the LANGUEDOC-PEZENAS Appellation, one of the most prestigious terroir of Languedoc. Bordered on the eastern side by the Hérault river and protected in the north by the Montagne Noire.
Vinification : Fermented in stainless steel and concrete vats to preserve the wine’s fruity aromas, followed by quite a long maceration (between 30 and 40 days) which gives the wine a lovely colour and pleasant aromatic structure. 50% of the wine is then matured in French oak barrels for 15 months to fine tune the structure and body, and 50% is matured in vats to maintain the wine’s freshness, fruit and complexity.
Soil : Broken stone from the Pliocene epoch over red clay.
Colour : Dark, dense red.
Nose : An explosion of red fruit (Morello cherries), peppery spices and wild herbs.
Palate : Smooth and full-bodied. Black fruit and spice aromas very quickly begin to tantalise the taste buds.
Recommendations : This wine is good drunk young with poultry or grilled red meat.
Serving condition in C° : 15°C
