It is a few vintages since we have worked with this fine producer, but we were entirely compelled by the quality and value of his current offerings. Lionel and Karine Belot run the estate started from scratch by Lionel’s father in 1985. He had the vision to see a good future in the hard-scrabble clay-and-limestone soils of the parcels he bought. The estate was expanded in 1997 with the purchase of a lovely nearby property called Le Tendon which was then replanted, mostly to international varieties. For the moment, we have chosen to bring in two different red wines made from traditional southern varieties.

Total Annual Production:
Set at the foot of the magnificent Fontjun mountain pass, near the ancient royal forest of Bousquet, Le Tendon is more than just a vineyard, it is a haven of peace steeped in history. It is said that Louis XIV stayed here during the royal hunt, whilst passing throught the Languedoc.
I’ve been pursuing this activity that I love for 20 years now, working in a region where the climate is favourable for wine growing. I’ve been guided and helped by Jacques, my father, a highly-committed man who was convinced that great wines could be made in Languedoc. I took over the domaine in the early 2000s, adapting lutte raisonnée (sustainable agriculture) methods so that the vines and the terroir could really express themselves.
