Bellefont-Belcier, a grand cru classé with a magnificent terroir covering the eastern part of the Côte Pavie, between Larcis-Ducasse and Le Tertre Rôteboeuf, is Mr. Kwok's latest acquisition (2016) in Saint-Émilion.

Under the guidance of Michel Rolland and his team, his first vintage 2017 is already a masterstroke.

"The new owner wanted to mark a break with a more thorough selection of plots and a softer vinification. As a result, there will only be 30,000 bottles in 2017. This vintage is composed of 30% Cabernet Franc and 70% Merlot. The tannin is generous with a beautiful chalky élan from the middle palate. A successful first!". Noted 16/20.

Bettane & Desseauve - May 2018

"Delicate on the attack, immediately perfumed after, melting and tasty, meticulous in its touch, the wine stretches to a pleasant and long finish. Very nice set. Here, the vintage favours a milder tannicity.". Noted 16/20.

    Sous la conduite de Michel Rolland et son équipe, son premier millésime 2017 est déjà un coup de maître, signalé comme tel par M. Bettane « Le nouveau propriétaire a voulu marquer une forme de rupture avec une sélection parcellaire plus poussée et une vinification plus douce. Une première réussie ! ».
