Located in the south of France, Mas Belles Eaux is named after the numerous freshwater springs that run through the property. Although the estate dates back to the 17th century it wasn’t until 2002 when the owners of Quinta do Noval and Chateau Pichon-Baron bought and began renovations, that the estate has begun to realize its true potential. There are two vineyards on the 200 acre estate, both planted to Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and old Carignan. The Mas Belles Eaux vineyard is a mid-slope, terraced vineyard composed of alluvial gritty clay while the terraces in the Sainte Helene vineyard are a mix of argilo-calcareous and Villafranchien gravel. Well-draining soils, long sunny days, chilly evenings and dry cooling winds provide ideal growing conditions.
