A mineral and dense Saint-Emilion

Chateau Bellevue 2016 is a 100% Merlot produced in Saint-Emilion. Summer was very hot, and especially dry. The clay-limestone soil and blue clay allowed the vines to continue maturing, despite the extreme summer temperatures.

Bellevue 2016 has a powerfully enticing mixture of aromas. Notes of black fruits, pastries, and gillyflowers. In the mouth, creamy sensations and a great tension combine for a pleasant silky texture. The tannins provide the backbone and structure for the wine. The finish has flavours of flint stone, confirming the minerality of Saint-Emilion.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Bellevue has an attractive bouquet with bright redcurrant and cassis notes although not as complex as either the Angelus or Carillon d'Angelus. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannin, silky to the touch with a touch of oyster shell tincturing the red fruit on the finish. Probably earlier drinking that others, it is a well-crafted Saint Emilion.
