Winemaker Christophe Pont runs all aspects of this small winery operation with his own bare hands. The ten hectare spread of Val Beylie is just large enough to feed the family and small enough to avoid the need for employees – Just the right size for a man driven to keep life simple and fulfilling. Deep purple color with clean, fruit forward nose, smooth in the mouth with red berry candied fruit with hints of smoke and good acidity, nice and balanced on the finish. This is a delicious, balanced wine made from 75% Merlot and 24% Cab Franc. Only 500 cases produced.
