Château Lamothe Belair - 2011, rouge, Bergerac

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

This month, I am happy to present a wine from Bergerac. It is rich and well structured, with very intense flavours. It is very smooth on the palate and shows smoky aromas of oak. I would definitely recommend serving this wine with a beautiful piece of beef, why not some tasty beef from Bergerac where cow breeding is prevalent. If you wish, you can also let it age in you cellar.  

 

Terroir

Château Lamothe Belair is located 12km from Saint-Emilion, on the extension of the hills of Saint-Emilion. The soil is clay and limestone as most of the land in the Bordeaux/Southwest area. This kind of soil retains a lot of water and keeps it fresh, balancing the effects of the sun in order to keep the hint of freshness the wine needs.

lecepage Grape variety

This wine is a blend of most of the grape varieties you find in this part of France for red wines: merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and malbec. Merlot gives the wine flavours of red fruits and softens the tannins. The Cabernet Sauvignon and the Malbec balance that with a strong body and spicy and smoky flavours.

lemillesime Vintage

While other regions of France have suffered from hail, wind storms or extreme heat in 2011, the vineyards of Bergerac was spared and produced a really good vintage. This year, the spring was warm as a summer would be while the summer was fresh and rainy like March. Maybe it ruined the holidays of many europeans tourists in the South of France, but it really got the best from the vineyards of Bergerac.. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

When we think about Bergerac, we usually think about the very good sweet wines this terroir provides (Montbazillac, Montravel or Saussignac). But the fact is that you can find great red wines in the vineyards of Bergerac, such as the Château LamotheBelair, that was awarded several times. Château LamotheBelair is managed by StéphanePuyol who is the proud owner of two Châteaux in Saint-Emilion with evocative names:Barberousse (Barbarossa) and Montremblant!
