There are just 20 years, nobody would have imagined how the Château Belot would develop. In fact the creation of the vineyard is due to a crazy dream of our father, Jacques, to want to work for the pleasure his few vines during his moments of '' rest ''. Convinced that in this region could give birth to great wines. In 1997, an opportunity offered to them, a matter that should not pass because it will not come a second time in a winemaker's life. The family seeks a cellar for the development of future vintages and discovers ... Tendon! At the foot of the magnificent Fontjun cervical site, near the former Royal Forest of Bousquet, a winery, better than that, a haven, a place steeped in history since the former owners mention the arrival of Louis XIV staying a former appointment of royal hunts during its passage in Languedoc. The place is in bad condition: the 18 hectares of vineyards that have not been worked in years, the cellar with more served. We have to put it all on. The old abandoned vineyards were replaced by grape hitherto nonexistent on the field: Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. the cellar renovation work is being done in stride. Today the Château Belot covers 35 hectares in completely new production or created since 1988 giving Aoc Saint Chinian wine on 3 colors: white, red and rosé broadcast around the world.
