Château Belregard-Figeac “Tellus Vinea” Bordeaux Rouge '20
The Pueyo family has owned Belregard-Figeac since 1853. Brothers Jacques and Jean-Paul Pueyo are the current generation in charge of all affairs at Belregard-Figeac and have recently been joined by Jacques’s son, Christophe. The estate has remained in the family, and this continuous ownership is accompanied by the priceless and intimate knowledge of the best parcels of each vineyard gained through seasons of observation. This is the kind of understanding that no amount of time at university can replace, and their wines express the true character of their particular corner of Saint-Émilion.
Fruit for “Tellus Vinea" is harvested by hand from vineyards that border the Lalande de Pomerol appellation. The grapes undergo a three-day cold maceration, followed by alcoholic fermentation for eight to ten days. The wine is racked several times during its élevage in stainless steel and cement tanks before being fined and bottled. The grape composition is predominantly Merlot with a touch of Cabernet Franc in the blend that provides additional structure to the wine. Aromas of cigar box, spice, and dark and red fruits in the glass are followed with similar notes on the palate—blackberry, raspberry, and plum are coupled with persistent tannins and fresh acidity. This is a serious wine (especially for the price) that can be drunk now after a brief decant or cellared for future enjoyment.
