Mas Belles Eaux is a sister vineyard to Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron. It is owned by French insurance company AXA and was run by Jean-Michel Cazes of Château Lynch-Bages – makers of our other current favourite Rose L’Ostal Cazes – for a while.
And this doesn’t disappoint, recommended by the Assistant Manager in O’Briens Sandymount.
