The expression of a fine red wine from Haut-Médoc by Chateau Belle-Vue

The estate

Château Belle-Vue is situated in the appellation of Haut-Médoc, near Margaux on the left bank of Bordeaux.

The vineyard

The nearly 14 hectares of vineyard are planted in gravel soils typical of the Haut-Médoc appellation. The thirty year old vines are cultivated according to the principles of sustainable viticulture.

The vintage

A rainy winter preceded a mild and equally rainy spring. The milder conditions from mid-June favoured a homogeneous flowering and a gradual development of the vines. This precocity of the vines persisted until the harvest.

Vinification and ageing

The search for gentle extractions was a priority during the winemaking process. A cold pre-fermentation maceration was carried out, and the juices drained from the vat were sprinkled delicately by a gravity-fed system over the marc. A post fermentation maceration was carried out to refine the tannins. Ageing lasted 14 to 16 months in barrels (30% new oak barrels).

The blend

The Château Belle-Vue 2020 was made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (48%), Merlot (30%), Petit Verdot (20%), Cabernet Franc (1%) and Carménère (1%).
