Located on the outskirts of Bordeaux, in the district of Saint-Loubès. Inspiration for its name came from ancient fortified walls, which today stand in ruins amid the vines.
In 1896, the Château was acquired by the Manaud family. 5 generations have followed, and since August 2011, Marie-Isabelle Manaud-Guibbert, with her husband Laurent, are proud to be able to produce a highly traditional Bordeaux wine, made from a blend of the 5 Bordeaux grape varieties: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Like the most prestigious Bordeaux Crus, the wines are aged for several months in oak barrels, with the focus on seeking the perfect balance of fruit and oak. This is a Bordeaux wine with stunning aromatic complexity, structured for ageing.
WELL-STRUCTURED BORDEAUX WINE FOR KEEPING "The wine at Château Les Belles Murailles, with its lovely dark red colour tinged with subtle terracotta shades, is concentrated and intense on the bouquet, revealing well-balanced oak and fruit. On the finish, the wine demonstrates impressively lingering aromatics and subtle, silky tannins."
Thomas Drouineau, winemaker, Maison Delor.
