Keep it natural, baby.
Ripe and inviting on the nose, full of quince, ripe pear and a hint of red grapefuit. The tannins are soft and really nicely resolved (in comparison to the much more grippy 2018), and the fruit just lasts and lasts on the finish. Really nice mineral expression and a fine seam of salty acidity that provides tension.Spicy tannins, with a suggestion of red fruit and a lovely citrussy finish. A wonderful wine with depth and a quiet authority.
Skin fermented in amphora for 10 months, before bottling with a miniscule dose of SO2 (2mg/Litre)
The Pueyo family has been active in the Libournais for generations and has owned Château Belregard-Figeac since 1853. Christophe Pueyo, the family’s 5th generation took control of the domaine from his father and uncle in 2010, and has since converted the estate to organic viticulture and replaced many of the barriques with demi-muids and foudres (and the occasional amphora). The domaine controls just 16 ha of vines the Bordeaux AOC, with 7.2 ha within the Saint Émilion AOC, and a further 1.5 ha planted to white grapes. The estate produces wines labelled Tellus Vinea, Château Belregard-Figeac, La Fleur Garderose, and the Cuvées Héllebore.
