Estate

This Languedoc winery is owned by Pichon-Longueville of Bordeaux fame. The vineyards of Mas Belles Eaux stretch over 90 hectares of hillsides in the Languedoc, where they benefit from a varied, complex terroir of Villafranchian gravel over red clay and alluvial soils. The estate was called Belles Eaux because of the numerous springs around the property which run down into the Peyne River, which has a unique effect on the terroir and provide their freshness to the wines of Mas Belles Eaux.

Vinification

Fermentation in stainless steel and concrete vats followed by a quite long maceration (between 30 to 40 days). The wine is then aged in French oak barrels for 15 months.

Food Pairing

Ideal with poultry or grilled red meat.

Soil

Vineyard located on clay-limestone "coteaux" with stony rocks.
