An Haut-Médoc red wine with a seductive aromatic expression and freshness

The estate

Château Belle-Vue is a reference among fine Haut-Médoc wines, an appellation situated near Margaux on the left bank of Bordeaux.

The vineyard

Bearing a High Environmental Value certificate, Château Belle-Vue’s almost 15-hectare vineyard is planted on gravel soils, a typical feature of the Haut-Médoc appellation. The thirty-six-year old vines are cultivated according to sustainable viticultural practices.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted manually on a table after destemming. Cold pre-fermentation maceration for more than 3 weeks. Gravity-fed racking. Maceration for an average of 35 days after fermentation. Aged for 14 to 16 months in barrels (30% new, 30% first-fill 20% second-fill) and in vats (20%).

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (45%)

Merlot (35%)

Petit Verdot (20%)

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Blended of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 20% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Belle-Vue has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and nose of spice box, cedar chest and oolong tea with a core of red and black currants plus a waft of chargrill. The palate is medium-bodied, fresh, soft and juicy with a lovely burst of black fruit in the mouth leading to a savory finish. Nearly 900 cases were made.
