Tellus Vinea

Posted on Posted in Chateau Belregard Figeac, Insights

The Tellus Vinea recently made a full three-vintage jump from 2011 to 2014.  The Pueyos did not make the wine in 2012 or 2013 due to an exciting array of climatic phenomena, and ultimately were forced to look for a new source for this wine.  The site on the border with Lalande-de-Pomerol was no longer viable.

The 2014 vintage is wine sourced from a vineyard owned by a family friend, which is located on an argilo-calcaire site in Juillac, further to the east.  The vineyard is managed with organic methods and the Pueyo family does a manual harvest.  It is 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.  This will be the source of the wine through at least the 2018 vintage, though the family is currently scouting out a new parcel to call their own.
