The Château Belingard estate, originally a 10th century Benedictine vineyard, has belonged to the Bosredon family since 1830. Since 1980, Count Laurent de Bosredon has successfully combined tradition and innovation to put his Monbazillac and Bergerac wines on a par with the very best.
Located southeast of Bordeaux and overlooking the scenic Dordogne River Valley, Monbazillac is well known for its luscious sweet dessert wine produced from late-harvest Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle grapes. Produced in the same style as Sauternes, the harvest is handpicked, grape by grape, using only those grapes with Botrytis Cinerea (noble rot). This drastic selection process involves a very low yield and requires much work at the foot of the vine. Named in honor of Laurent de Bosredon’s grandmother, who died at the age of 102 after running the estate for nearly 60 years, this is a fantastic value in a sweet, yet elegant, dessert wine.
