Château de Bellet - Appellation Controlée

Great wines
“ Benefiting from the afternoon sun, the limestone and sulphurous terrain around the hillsides of Nice, produces the best wine. Indeed, the quality known as Bellet is especially renowned. Bellet can be conserved for many years without alteration. Its finesse, as well as its spiritual force, allow it to compete with the most exquisite wines from the south of Europe. ”
Dating back to 1847, these words spoken by a member of the Turin Royal Academy of Sciences, are still valid.
