Owner | Heritiers Escure. Jean-Marie Bouldy (whose own estate is Château Bellegrave à Pomerol) has been looking after the vineyard and winemaking at Bellisle Mondotte since 1987. He elevated the quality of the wine to the level of a St-Émilion cru classé, although the wine itself is not entitled to that appellation.
