Keep it natural, baby.
From the Pueyo brothers, owners of Chateau Belregard Figeac in St. Emilion whose cellars sit on the outskirts of Libourne, we now have the "Tellus Vinea", a Bordeaux appellation the first vintage of which has been produced in 2002. The vineyards that produce this wine are literally on the border of the appellation of Lalande de Pomerol. Those few meters of distance provide us with a real pricing edge. So, this wine of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon from 25 to 30 year old vines planted to gravelly soil bears the modest appellation of Bordeaux and a more than comfortable price tag. Yet, it is a solid wine with delightful freshness. Vinified entirely in cuve, it sports a rich red color and lively fruitiness with a suave and lingering finish quite simply a delicious wine.
