2008 Le Chanceux Cabernet Sauvignon
           ~ Silver Medal ~
2012 Finger Lakes Int'l Wine Competition

Family owned & operated, every vintage from Belles Filles Vineyard is unique & carefully nurtured on the vines until optimum quality is reached. Our small batches are hand crafted with minimal intervention andmaximum attention.  True to this sub-appellation, Le Chanceux Cabernet Sauvignon is dense and rich with good Coombsville earthy character.

From Matt Kramer of Wine Spectator: "Recently, I was speaking at a charity wine event in Jackson Hole, Wyo. It was a high-end shindig with a lot of big-name Napa Valley wines (and owners) in attendance. But truffled among the more famous labels were a number of very small producers who are far from the spotlight, never mind being in Napa Valley. Anyway, I'm tasting through the array and come upon a 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon from a winery in the new Coombsville AVA, called Le Chanceux. Heard of it? Me neither. And why should we have? This microwinery produces only 200 cases, total. I taste their 2008 and … zing! Now, some of you likely know that I'm no pushover for Cabernet, but I'm here to testify that the 2008 Le Chanceux Cabernet grabbed me and wouldn't let go. It was a stunner." http://www.winespectator.com/webfeature/show/id/46988
